The script tools/dev/check_source_standards.pl now (as of r17637) only
contains a test of the MANIFEST (the script also doesn't currently
work). I believe all tests which used to be part of this file are now
in t/codingstd and therefore this script can be renamed to something
more appropriate to what it does, or deleted. This ticket can then be
close.

What is the opinion as to what should be done with the script?

enough to resolve it.

Since the above ticket has now been resolved, does this mean that this
ticket can also be resolved?
