Thanks David. In fact, this is our exact policy for all text files except
for ivy*.xml. Why not ivy*.xml files? Because ivy*.xml files have md5 and/or
sha1 hashes associated with them by default. Since eol-style native checks
out files differently on windows and 'nix, the md5/sha1 sums are only
correct some of the time. Hence our decision to require eol-style LF for
ivy*.xml. However, as I described, even this does not work when the ivy file
is generated (via "deliver") on windows, since the md5/sha1 sums are
calculated based on inconsistent line endings. Our work-around for now is to
use svn:mime-type=application/octet-stream for ivy*.xml, which is silly, but
so far seems to work.
