Most of the changes remove double spacing between sentences.
This was intentional and I do not think it needs to be corrected.

Can you elaborate more on the reasoning behind this intent?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sentence_spacing

What I grasped from the article is that double spacing is now being
slowly deprecated in favour of a single space between both words and
sentences.


Double spacing is certainly less common in 'the real world' but it seems like
there are a disproportionate number of people who use it in open source
communication. Still a minority though, and I agree with the general idea of
standardizing on single space in libvirt code


Just my two cents (as that possibility was not mentioned); I use double
space after full stop to separate sentences when using monospace (that
is for all stuff that can be in terminal.  Those who see it with another
font usually don't care and for those who do see it in monospace it is
usually more readable.  And that was the case for the usage earlier in
the digital age I believe, although I didn't read the wikipedia article.
Did nobody seriously play any classic adventure games from the 80's from
a certain known (unnamed) publisher?  All the dialogues used double
spacing between sentences.  Should *I* feel old now? =)
