The intent of your patch seems reasonable to me. There are a few minor
language and typographical mistakes, and the patch itself is

Hi Jeff,

thanks for the feedback, very appreciated.

But I don't understand what's wrong with the whitespaces.

Can you explain to me what's wrong and how I can avoid the issue?

I use thunderbird in text mode to send emails, should I use something else? what?

Try 'git format-patch' and 'git send-email'. The format-patch man page even has a note about Thunderbird corruptions.


I also do not know that it is accurate to say "most git commands ignore lightweight tags". It is really only "naming" ones like "git describe".

Here is a re-send of your patch with the fixups I would recommend.

Thanks, it's obviously better.

I'll send this new version as soon as you or someone else explain me how to fix the whitespace damage.
