Subject Re: EOL settings in subversion

OK, thanks for the response.  I'm currently using auto-props, and I'm 
hoping that SVN eventually will implement the server-side auto-props 
feature that's been talked about.  For now, we'll just have to be vigilant 
about users that are adding files without svn:eol-style=native.
