no tabs. This matches python recommendations and avoided issues with
some version of python which became stricter about whitespace if I
remember rightly, something like that anyway. Regardless, there was a
pressing reason to fix things to one format.
There was a proposal we should standardise shell functions too. One of
our style guides said tabs, one said spaces. Most of OE-Core was tabs.
Rather than change everything, the TSC discussed and agreed to leave as
tabs rather than have patch churn although it was a tough decision and a
lot of discussion. meta-oe standardised on four space indentation for
shell since they believed the TSC to be wrong.
There are clearly arguments either way, not least that editor settings
are easier if its all spaces rather than having to be context aware.
