To find errors, ensure you have an up-to-date master with the flake8 config in setup.cfg, then remove E126 from the ignore list there. You can then run flake8 from the directory with setup.cfg in it to list all errors - there should be about 300.

Attaching an example patch to get you started.

Apply it, if you'd like:

patch -p1 -i E126.diff

This cleanup is a bit less straight forward than the other recent pep8 tickets.

The attached patch makes sense to me, when we are changing the indentation of homogeneous list/dictionary items and function arguments.

However other E126 errors seem trickier to fix.

I've included a patch for django/contrib/contenttypes/ as an example. I'm concerned that I've made the code less readable, because the indentation to distinguish between dictionary keys and values has been removed.

Another tricky example is lines 113 & 114 of It's not clear to me how to re-format the code to remove the error.

Thanks for bring this up. For the contenttypes, I would put the key/value pairs on the same line, even if we have to go a bit over 80 chars. 80 chars is a soft guideline that may be broken for readability.

Similarly for db.models.base I think tuple(x.DoesNotExist for x in parents if hasattr(x, '_meta') and not x._meta.abstract) or (ObjectDoesNotExist,), could all be on the same line. Feel free to make adjustments if you feel otherwise.

Thanks for the suggestions. They were enough for me to finish my patch.
