suckless software is not realease based. Patches are often created against head
and uploaded to the wiki with the respective commit-hash so people can rebase it
as they need.

I think there is no real „right“ moment to push style changes, so just do it
whenever they are ready. As you all probably have heard a few times: Users of
suckless software are developers. Developers should not have huge problems
adapting their patches to apply against the changed style. I think the community
level style rules are more important for consistency than the project specific
historically grown ones.
