I like your style of putting the space at the beginning after the newlines. I think I agree that it is quite readable. I will try it. I accept your answer.

If I understood correctly, that is what I am doing atm. My paragraphs are separated by two new lines. Making a new line each sentence would destroy this optical structure in the tex file.

I do not like the post processing idea, because then the versioned tex(t) is different from the one I wrote. Thats a source of error I would not like to introduce just to get a smaller git repository. I think the posts with latexdiff are quite some idea. Maybe it is possible to change the diff program that git uses for a repository

Well that is true that in programming languages and as well as in the "command-parts" in Latex new lines help structuring the document. In text those structures are paragraphs not sentences. And keeping sentences together makes it easier to read the tex document if it contains much text. You would not write your (c/c++) code with a new line after each word either, would you?
