I've looked into build.xml and found svn.revision property.  If this is
what you mean, then I don't see any difference in using commit hash instead.
The hash is obviously longer than svn revision number. Though first few
characters are enough for git, so you don't need to type the whole hash.
You can use "exec" task for calling "git rev-parse HEAD". That will return
the current revision (hash).
Is it what you mean?

Create a file called ".gitattributes" in the project root. In this file you
can specify attributes for files, including line endings.
Here is modified example from github article "Dealing with line endings":

# Set the default behavior, in case people don't have core.autocrlf set.
* text=auto

# Explicitly declare text files you want to always be normalized and
# to native line endings on checkout.
*.java text

# Declare files that will always have CRLF line endings on checkout.
*.cmd text eol=crlf
*.bat text eol=crlf

# Declare files that will always have LF line endings on checkout.
*.sh eol=lf

# Denote all files that are truly binary and should not be modified.
*.png binary
*.jpg binary
