I'll  propose this as our style guide then. Just like Ross in one posting (I 
think back in 2009), I'm interested specially in getting to know about indent 
style. patch.shtml talks about 8-space-tabs (and true tabs instead of blanks). 
Since there are other Gnome projects (like Gimp) which do not allow tabs - but 
use blanks for all indentation, for purposes e.g. of alignment of parameters 
in multi-lined function signatures - I wanted to be sure here that we follow 
the proper Evolution-path.

Okay, thanks.
