Hi All,

There is one case in which Webkit style guidelines and Python style guidelines do not match. This is about spacing before inline comments.

WebKit style guidelines (https://webkit.org/code-style-guidelines/#comments-eol <https://webkit.org/code-style-guidelines/#comments-eol>) says: "Use only one space before end of line comments and in between sentences in comments."

Python PEP8 style guidelines (https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0008/#inline-comments <https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0008/#inline-comments>) says: "Inline comments should be separated by at least two spaces from the statement."

Should we use "one space" or "two spaces" before the inline comments in python code inside Webkit?
