Regarding devs adding/removing trailing whitespace.

These makes merging branches & applying patches a hassle, while giving
minimal benifit, not even helping readability.

I recall this topic came up before but couldn't find it on the wiki
anywhere, so added a note:


Don't make minor changes such as trailing whitespace to existing code
(unless you're the module owner).

... though this could be changed if other devs have a strong opinion.
