I would rather see this part left untouched. Your new text will force people who are not interested in using non-standard tab width to read through the bulletted list, only to find "The default tab width is 8". I think that is a regression in the documentation for more common readers. When somebody wants to use `indent-with-non-tab` and gets offended by the seemingly hardcoded "8" in the description, the reader has incentive to find out if there is a way to change that 8, and will find `tabwidth=<n>` in the same bulletted list described, with the effect it has on both `indent-with-non-tab` and `tab-in-indent`. I think that should be sufficient for people who do use non-standard tab width using tabwidth=<n>. -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
