Hello everybody,

https://review.coreboot.org/c/coreboot/+/51825 proposes getting rid of the rule to make if-statement blocks (and the like) as short as possible.
The rationale is to encourage a style that avoids subtle bugs which then need to be found by tooling such as Coverity Scan and fixed by commits like https://review.coreboot.org/51786.

Julius disagrees and requests wider discussion, specifically on the mailing list.
So here we are: Arguments? Opinions?

Julius, maybe you want to make your case, I didn't want to risk representing a distorted position.
