I've not seen actual coding templates,
but "spaces vs tabs" is documented :)

We have that written down at

There is a configuration for astyle, but I just started to try that one.

I expect there to be lots of code in our code base that does not conform
to our style. Please keep style changes in separate commits from the
actual code changes. That makes it easier to understand the actual
changes when reviewing or hunting bugs in the years to come.

We are slowly going trough warnings from cppcheck and the compilers to
make it easier for people to work with our code.
Ripping out dead code, old QT3/4 stuff, frame grabber grabber support
and other things from times that have long gone.
