Just a few reminders to make people's life easier.
When providing a patch, please refrain from applying style changes  
(including imports), this is a hell of a pain to know what has  
changed for real.
When committing a fix for a a given issue, do the same, refrain from  
style fixes, also always put the JIRA issue number in the svn commit.  
You can always apply style changes in a different commit operation.
The reason behind that is to make backporting life easier. It's  
trivial from a jira issue number to find the according diff file (eg  
with fisheye). When the diff is bloated with style changes it's a pain.
