Did you set defaults for subversion as documented in


If so, maybe it is trying to add the pom.xml file with the default 
eol-style for xml files and it has found that your pom.xml file contains 
a combination of LF and CRLF line endings, therefore saying it is 
inconsistent.  Maybe you need to get hold of a text editor that can 
clean these up, or a file hex editor.  Did you use different tools when 
creating and editing the pom.xml file?  If so, are the line endings 
configured differently?

If you are on Windows all line endings should be CRLF and if you are on 
*NIX then you should have LF line endings in the file. 

The settings in the wiki page above ensure that when you get a file from 
subversion that the line endings for text based files are in the correct 
style for your system.  I am guessing that the eol-style  settings are 
also used when adding a file to convert from an end user's native 
eol-style to a normalized style (not sure what style it is stored on the 
server, maybe the server's native style) and maybe that is where it is 
having problems??
