As far as I know, it was decreed that hard tabs should be avoided.

To me, the alignment of the columns looks poor both when tabs are  
used (because the tab width Mail.app decides to use is often  
different from the one the portfile author intended) and when spaces  
are used (because with this particular HTML/CSS combo, Mail.app is  
ignoring the CSS directive to make the text fixed-width).

It's possible we may be switching email notification scripts  
entirely, to one that also supports post-revprop-change emails; see:


So maybe let's not worry too much about the commit emails at this point.
