Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-1286) Have CRLF line endings for zip distribution and LF line endings for tar.gz distribution

John Sisson commented on GERONIMO-1286:
---------------------------------------

We need to discuss this further, as I felt we had a majority that wanted the zip to be CRLF.
 Windows users may also use DOS commands to view files, so if the files just had LFs I am
guessing it wouldn't be usable.  Also it bugs me when on windows and being asked by editors
whether I want to convert the file to DOS format.  Surely there are enough windows users in
the world to consider a distribution format that is suited to them.  *NIX users should use
the tar.gz distribution.

I don't like the idea of relying upon the line endings of the release system.  Builds should
be consistent, no matter what system they are built on.  I am going to check in my changes
so far to modules/assembly.  What ever is decided needs to be integrated into the new build.

> Previously, the line endings on files in a Geronimo distribution were based upon the
platform the distribution was built on.
> The build needs to be improved so that no matter what platform Geronimo is built on:
> * the resulting distributions should contain the same files (no files excluded)
> * the resulting zip distribution should have CRLF line endings for viewable/editable
text files and therefore is targeted at windows users.
> * the resulting tar.gz distribution should have LF line endings for non-Windows platforms.
 All non-Windows users should use the tar.gz file as the tar file also contains permission
settings for the files.
