Please elaborate that. So that further adding of trailing white spaces can be avoided. git log -p 90d7c6b97dbae2c913e...90d7c6b97dbae2c913e~1 shows at my screen many green lines for added lines plus a red block indicating "WARNING, here is trailing white space" Commit 90d7c6b97dbae2c913 is currently the most recent commit. In others words: It make sense to tell right now how to avoid trailing white space. It is not an old mistake.
