I feel called out by this. :)

@mjog
What is the correct solution provided by clang-format? Is it the same as with rustfmt or goformat, i.e., simply defining the default formatter style as the right one and thereby inhibiting any style wars from the beginning on?

@tsdh I assume clang-format uses clang's AST and hence is able to re-format pretty much any C code, unlike other C formatters?

@mjog
I don't know. That's why I've asked. I mean, knowing exactly what you format solves technical issues but not the different subjective preferences people have which have been the main point of the posting.
