Kind request to code reviewers

I’d like to draw the attention of reviewers to GitHub’s ‘Hide whitespace changes’ functionality. It would facilitate eliminating poor formatting from the code without causing to much trouble for the reviewer at the same time saving the implementer from artificially reintroducing formatting flaws (and thus loosing intended code changes unintentionally - cost me hours yesterday).


@farndt thanks for sharing this

Does this mean that whitespace changes get hidden from the reviewer but actually get merged in?

What does that feature actually do ?? Does it apply the actual change in the commit ?? or it simply hides the poor formats ??:smiley:
