-There is no coding style used for ReactOS, however the following guidelines
-make things easier
+There is a coding style used for ReactOS, it's described in a ReactOS's Wiki
+page called Coding Style: http://www.reactos.org/wiki/index.php/Coding_Style
 
-     Include information at the top of a module about its purpose, contact
-     information for its programmer and any useful notes. 
-     
-     Include a comment by each non-trival function describing its arguments,
-     purpose and any other notes.
-     
-     Update the documentation in this directory
-     
-These guidelines are an ideal, no one manages to implement them all the
-time, straightforward working code is probably just as good.
+However, not all codebase complies with the rules outlined in that page, so
+if you need to hack some code which has not been yet formatted, it's wise
+to keep the kind of formatting it already has, to make it looking good until
+it receives a formatting patch.
