How to contribute
You can contribute to the project in a number of ways:

We use CheckStyle [sourceforge.net] to
enforce code styles, which supports the
Sun Code Conventions [sun.com].
We do have some exceptions however (for reasons of practicality). When we
invoke checkstyle using ant then we use
checkstyle.require.version = true
checkstyle.javadoc.scope = nothing
checkstyle.maxlinelen = 200
checkstyle.tab.width = 4
javadocScope: We don't have @param declarations everywhere, and some
dsocumentation is missing. Mostly this is trivial documentation that isn't
really required. But it is one of our objectives to add all javadoc so that we
can eventually remove this restriction.
