One of the great things about OpenBSD is that the core team makes a very concerted effort at keeping the code extremely clean and readable. This greatly fascilitates finding and fixing bugs, and is one of the things that makes OpenBSD so stable. It also helps make OpenBSD a great platform to develop on.
The best example I've seen of this recently is this commit message:
"8579 lines of KNF, ANSO and zap-junk diff without the resulting binary changing by a single byte."Now that's a code cleanup. Thanks a lot Henning and Theo and the rest of the OpenBSD team!"
