4 I think you should be ashamed for bringing it up. ;-)
6 I disagree with your suggestion in this context, regardless of how much
7 I may agree with it in other contexts. I think there is no clear-cut
8 'correct' answer to this question that everyone can agree is the best
9 possible answer, at least that has been my experience on every other
10 project where this has come up.
12 Therefore, I think we should defer to the ebuilds as they currently
13 exist, and to the original and well-documented wishes of the Progenitor
14 of Gentoo Linux and use nothing but tabs for indenting. If you want
15 things to look right, set up your editor to have 4-space tab stops.
17 In other words, let's all suck it up. :-) Let's get back to work on the
18 software itself, and to spend as little time as possible discussing this
19 issue with the whole community of Gentoo developers.

23 PS. Yes, I'm a little embarrassed that I just spent 5 minutes writing
24 this. I promise I won't do it again.
