Sorry, but that sounds like a bad choice of editor, or at least wrong
settings in your editor. Which editor are you using? All proper editors
that I know have a way to determine the indentation type automatically from
the source code that you're opening. I can recommend Geany
(, it can also show tabs and spaces in a different way,
so you can easily spot mistakes while editing the sources.

Sorry to hear that, but you also have to understand that it's really not
working either to increase the burdon on the maintainers instead (so that
they have to deal with patches that a way harder to review and debug later).
