Description Philip Kovacs 2007-01-14 01:22:15 UTC
Please don't enbed tabs in /etc/make.conf.example.  It just creates additional
(useless) merge work downstream.

Consider a vi[m] modeline at bottom:

# vi:set ts=8 sw=8 et ai #

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-01-14 01:24:36 UTC
Dunno what 'enbed tabs' exactly means; but sticking vim cruft into config files plain sucks and the file is just fine.

Comment 2 Philip Kovacs 2007-01-14 01:59:15 UTC
EMBED tabs.

Whoever is making recent changes to that file has begun to add hard tabs.
THAT is cruft.  Use spaces.  Expand tabs.  Come ON.
