Re: [paho-dev] Tabs vs. spaces in the codebase

I believe Eclipse Coding Conventions (which obviously have a Java slant historically) are based on Sun's:

"We indent with tabs, 4 spaces wide" - which I interpret to mean tabs should be 4 space character, not a tab character.

parts of the codebase use tabs, while some use spaces.

Have the Paho team considered settling on either option
and enforcing it?

This is not a top priority issue but it makes it life of patch reviewers harder
*and* makes it harder for contributors to make sure your patch has a good
signal/noise ratio.
