The indenter is here:

There is also an on the fly formatter that reformats statements and
blocks when the closing semicolon/brace is types:

Unfortunately the indenter has not been well maintained for some time,
and does not handle newer C# constructs well (lambda, etc), and does
not respect the code formatting style settings.

The goal of this project would be to improve the intenter so that it's
more maintainable and respects all the formatting settings. Ideally it
would use the on the fly formatter to calculate the indent when
possible, with perhaps some fallback heuristics when the on the fly
formatter fails.
