Hi all, This discussion is about _very_ trivial change, but it would break backwards compatibility, so I want to get some consensus before I commit anything.
Ticket #3532 ( http://code.django.project.com/tickets/3532 ) discusses the spaceless templatetag. In particular, there has been a request that spaceless be configurable to allow NO spaces. The patch attached is good, and ready to commit. However, the ticket has stimulated a discussion about whether 0 spaces should be the default value for the number of spaces. Personally, I'm inclined to agree that spaceless should mean spaceless. My experience with HTML rendering has been that 1 space is no different to 100 spaces for most web browsers - but 0 spaces can be interpreted quite differently. I can't see a use case for the 1-space-preserving behaviour. So - 1) Is there a valid use case out there for the default 'leave 1 space' behaviour that I am missing? 2) What is the community opinion on changing the default behaviour of spaceless to 0 spaces (thereby introducing a backwards incompatibility)? 3) Whatever the default value is, is there a need for configurability of the number of spaces provided by this tag? 4) Can we get an official pronouncement from Adrian to shortcut the debate completely?
