[petsc-dev] Not a single person has approved the MR for allowing the use of clang-format on the repository

  Note that this MR does not clang-format the repository nor require that future MR satisfy the clang-format (yet). It merely fixes up everything needed so that we can clang-format the repository. https://gitlab.com/petsc/petsc/-/merge_requests/5455 <https://gitlab.com/petsc/petsc/-/merge_requests/5455> in the future.

  Not a single person has approved the MR; so it appears that everyone, including Jed, does not like the idea of having a way of automatically formatting the repository to eliminate much of the white-space chasing that drives Satish nuts.

  This is frustrating; why would anyone go through the effort of contributing to PETSc based on long-term requests for improvements if everything just hangs ?

  If you object to the MR, please note it in the MR otherwise, at least a few people, please approve the MR.
