remove leading white spaces from the first line in felix.hot.deployment paragraph (pom.xml)

Reported by: Malte Owned by: jri
Priority: Major Milestone: Release 4.8.1
Component: DeepaMehta Standard Distribution Version: 4.8
Keywords: Cc: jri
Complexity: 1 Area: Application Framework / API


In the pom.xml defaults configuration there white spaces are contained despite there is a (very helpful) note on:

"IMPORTANT: in case of a (comma-separated) list no spaces are allowed between the items."

Here is a suggestion for a small and simple improvement:
To reduce the risk of potential errors for new plugin developers the default configuration should not contain any whitespaces by default but just TABs and LINE BRREAKS. Otherwise, as soon as the plugin developer adds her plugin development folder) she needs to tinker with a configuration line which has nothing to do with her goal/task.

The comment states:

in case of a (comma-separated) list no spaces are allowed **between** the items

So, when you add paths no spaces are allowed between the paths.
However, spaces are allowed between 1) the opening tag and the first path, and 2) the last path and the closing tag.

So, the default pom.xml is formatted perfectly fine.
Note: TAB characters are never used in any DM file.
