[Phpmyadmin-devel] Issue with closing tags at the end of the file

Hi everyone,

In all files of phpMyAdmin source code, closing tag (?>) is included at the
end of file. Most frameworks like zend or symfony or laravel suggest to
omit closing tag to prevent accidental output of whites paces. In some
situations  output may send headers which makes the application incapable
to control response headers.

My question is: Is there any specific reason for doing so?
secondly: Can we omit closing tags at the end of file?
