I made a number of changes in a file I'm working on, including indentation changes. I'm using vimdiff to compare the file to the original version, and I don't want to see these changes, since they're basically cosmetic.

How can I tell vimdiff to ignore whitespace during the comparison?

Though that doesn't make it ignore all whitespace; see this SO question. –  Kazark Jan 4 '13 at 0:56
