Subject [jira] Commented: (UIMA-1163) set svn:eol-style to native for source files in UIMA project
Date Tue, 02 Sep 2008 17:31:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-1163?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12627758#action_12627758

Marshall Schor commented on UIMA-1163:

Among the kinds of files in our svn repository are scripts.  Some of these are intended for
windows (they end in .cmd or .bat).  Others are intended to run on linux or other unix (they
end in .sh).

How should the svn:eol-style be set for these?

Here are some choices:

1) no setting at all
2) "native"
3) CRLF for the Windows files, LF for the *nix files

Do we have a goal of having the line endings for the scripts correspond to the Operating System
category (windows or *nix)?

It may be true that most (all?) target OSs don't care about this.  It might be "safer" though
to have these match.

If we want them to match, then 2) above fails - because if we "build" the distribution on
a Windows system, it would have CRLF for all files, and if we build on a *nix system, it would
have LF for all files.

1) and 3) would work for these, provided if choosing 1) we insured the line endings were the
right "kind" for the file.  This seems easy to break, though - I think most of our "mixed
line endings" situations were caused by copy /paste actions in the past (perhaps copying in
a license header, etc.).  

So, *if* we have a goal of having the line endings for scripts correspond to the OS category,
 I think 3) is the best. 

Other opinions?

If no dissent, I will try and achieve this as I go thru fixing up line endings (but it's not
hi priority work)

>            Priority: Minor
> set the svn:eol-style to native for java source files in the UIMA project.  (Other sandbox
projects may also want to do similar things, and the uimaCPP project, and the site project).
> Don't set this for scripts - the ones that are intended to run on windows probably can
have either line ending style, but I think the ones that run on the various linuxes need the
unix style.  This is so that extracts for builds done on a windows machine can properly build
a linux distribution.
> Don't set this for test data - some UTF-16 or UTF-8 test data may have things intentionally
present that might look like line endings, but are not, and should not be disturbed by checkout.
