Well, I guess you're either spending time satisfying the linter, or
spending two people's time satisfying the reviewer who sees the sea of -'s
when someone changes one line in several files and their tool strips
whitespace, explaining the non-policy, then has to go back through their
commits and remove the hunks that make whitespace changes...
No new history
So all of the new repos will be carrying the entire history of IPython, or
is there dark filter-branch foo happening? Exciting either way! Good luck!
