Description

By default, Redmine's diff reports any whitespace differences. To turn this off please edit:

/home/redmine/lib/redmine/scm/adapters/git_adapter.rb

locate the lines:

if identifier_to
cmd_args << "diff" << "--no-color" <<  identifier_to << identifier_from
else
cmd_args << "show" << "--no-color" << identifier_from
end

and change them to:

if identifier_to
cmd_args << "diff" << "--no-color" <<  "-w" << identifier_to << identifier_from
else
cmd_args << "show" << "--no-color" << "-w" << identifier_from
end

In my opinion it should be a option under the settings point repositories.

In a previous version I hacked in a setting at the top of the diff page that turned on and off whitespace ignoring, like the inline versus side-by-side setting. It worked well in my case, but isn't worthy of a patch because it only worked for Subversion. Doing it properly would require passing some options down through the scm models.
