In general, follow Hen's sage advice below.  If you are finding tabs in 
the source, however, these should be eliminated.  If you run maven 
site:generate, the checkstyle plugin should flag this.  It is also 
always a good idea to run either maven or ant clean dist and review the 
javadoc report to make sure that all tests run and the patch is not 
introducing any javadoc warnings or errors.

Thanks for the patches!
