I recommend it. The maintainer may not fully understand the issue you're reporting, or may forget, and may commit your diff exactly as submitted.

I added this note to the ticket to ensure the maintainer knows to bump the revision.

Yes, but bumping the revision is a required change in this case, since otherwise users who already have the port installed will not be prompted to upgrade and will thus be left with nonfunctional installations.

Yes, thank you, please continue to not make whitespace changes at the same time as functional changes.
