Comment (by christinavoudouris):

 Hi, thanks for the quick reply on this! I did not see the old tickets even
 after searching.

 Personally I find it odd that people are so adamantly against changing
 this file. I am sure many people think to send a PR and realize upon
 sesrching that it has already been attempted. This is inconvenient for end

 There are lots of things on the web we don't *have* to fix but look better
 in terms of usability and readability when we do. The repository is public
 and leaving the file as is looks like a mistake that hasn't been
 corrected. It's even hard for maintainers to read.

 Just thought I'd take the opportunity to present a different opinion. I'll
 need a go ahead from someone to make a change though.
