Have you thought the reason why the formatted result _before_ the patch is good? These *.txt files are asciidoc formatted source files. They are meant to be easy to read and edit without distracting mark-ups (unlike roff and html), but with one big precondition: your tab-width ought to be 8. That is how asciidoc expands the tab when producing the formatted output, and that is why the formatted result _before_ the patch is good. Expanding these tabs to all spaces do not buy us anything, other than source code bloat, and with one downside. It would give a false impression that it somehow is OK to open these *.txt files with a wrong tab-width setting, and even worse, edit them. You may even type a new tab yourself to indent by 4 places, and formatted result will be broken by such a person. It would signal that your tab-width setting is not suitable to view/edit these files if the elements in the illustration do not line up. View it as a bonus safety feature ;-) -- 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
