Looking through the files I noticed that the lua files use 3 spaces for indentation, while the c++ part uses a 3 spaced tab. But some files use a mix of tabs and spaces; for example.

The Contribute Site references the Google Style Code, but there it says no tabs only 2 spaces...

SirVer and I didn't really agree on this - I prefer tabs, he prefers spaces. SO, there was never any consensus.

Lua should definitely use spaces now, because we have a script for fixing the indentation that depends on it.

I'm surprised that clang-format doesn't unify matters for C++ though - we run it on every merge to trunk.
