Just ran it without issue after doing an `svn up`.
As for fix vs. not, while fixing indentations and removing trailing whitespace is nice, it isn't necessary. Both instances should be a rarity (most IDEs will make sure the situation doesn't occur), so the most important thing is detecting there is an issue for people to fix them (along with providing as much info as possible to make it easy to fix) rather than fixing it for them (if that turns out to be somewhat complicated to do).
