I have no clue how I managed to send that last email encrypted -
Apologies :)

Re YAPF, or autofomatting, I've very little opinion..

But - I gave YAPF a go against the Designate codebase with the stock config:

  258 files changed, 5242 insertions(+), 5691 deletions(-)

Getting changes like that into the various projects won't be easy, even
if the core team is happy to just +A without reviewing for potential
issues, a massive percentage of in-progress reviews will fail to merge
and need manual rebasing.

For companies with internal forks/patches - those will likely all have
to be redone too..

I'm not sure there's really a good solution to this
