   for one of my courses, i wanted to write a section about the various
techniques for dealing with whitespace issues in git, so i started
making a list, things like:

   - running "git diff --check"
   - "git commit --cleanup=" possibilities
   - config options like core.{eol,safecrlf,autocrlf}
   - i'm sure there are client-side hooks that can be mentioned

etc, etc.

   has anyone ever written a doc that collects these things in one
place? if not, i guess i have to write one.


I don't know of a doc for whitespace issues, but the contributing guide on GitForWindows [1] recommends `git rebase --whitespace=fix`.
