Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-8911) CRLF characters in source and text files
Date Wed, 10 Oct 2012 18:07:03 GMT
Raja Aluri created HADOOP-8911:

             Summary: CRLF characters in source and text files
                 Key: HADOOP-8911
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8911
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: build
    Affects Versions: 1-win
            Reporter: Raja Aluri
             Fix For: 1-win

Source code in hadoop-common repo has a bunch of files that have CRLF endings.
With more development happening on windows there is a higher chance of more CRLF files getting
into the source tree.
I would like to avoid that by creating .gitattributes file which prevents sources from having
CRLF entries in text files.
But before adding the .gitattributes file we need to normalize the existing tree, so that
people when they sync after .giattributes change wont end up with a bunch of modified files
in their workspace.
I am adding a couple of links here to give more primer on what exactly is the issue and how
we are trying to fix it.
# http://git-scm.com/docs/gitattributes#_checking_out_and_checking_in
# http://stackoverflow.com/questions/170961/whats-the-best-crlf-handling-strategy-with-git

I will submit a separate bug and patch for .gitattributes
