Whitespace errors mean that there is a whitespace character (space or tab,
most likely) at the end of the line.

I avoid this problem by setting my editor (I use vim) to eliminate all
trailing whitespace when I save a file.

When applying patches, whitespace errors can be fixed by using the


option for git apply.

Yes, this is correct.  But the terminology we generally use is "master", not
"LP development branch".
