as discussed over the last months, we want to reformat the GRASS 6.4 and 7
source code in SVN (code indentation with "indent").

  This is a substantial change, so read on.

On Monday, 4 August, 22 CEST, I'll submit the source code update to SVN:

Impact for you:
- if you have local, unsubmitted change in .c or .h files, it is important to
  update these files with "tools/grass_indent.sh"
  *BEFORE* you update the next time from SVN. Otherwise you'll find
  most likely a conflict mess in these files. To this script, you can
give single
  or multiple files to get them re-indented with the decided flags.

- if you have a clean local copy with no local changes in .c or .h files
  just proceed as always and update from SVN.

I expect a smooth transition.
