Change svn/git line breaks to Unix
|Reported by:||robe||Owned by:|
It's too late for this round, but I believe I have come up with a fix that will allow me to build tar balls under mingw windows (#645). It's a "Treat me like a Unix user" not a windows or Mac user.
The issue I see it is that svn because it defaults the line break to native mode -- it sees me as a Windows user and kindly pulls all the files down with windows linebreaks. In most cases, windows doesn't actually care the line break (I haven't checked VS so we may need to make special provision). If VS cares, then its already screwed by the tar ball which is Unix linebreaks.
It's only Unix/Linux that are picky.
So solution, change all files to eol-style=LF. I believe there is an equivalent for git.
Does anyone see an issue with this?
