Subject RE: [all][POLL] what files to fixcrlf for windows distributions
Date Tue, 15 Nov 2005 22:47:23 GMT

I opened these issue to add a property to allow us to select the filter : 
http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MPDIST-28

Isn't it useful to ensure that the LF line ending is used in Unix Archives ?
