Yes, that is required so end users can fetch it if required.

Also AIUI it is used by Nexus.

That's not what I meant.

There should be an EOL at EOF.
I.e. the last line in source files should have an EOL.

[Whether the EOL is LF or CRLF or CR is immaterial to this discussion.]

Otherwise the files in the SVN tag aren't the same as the files in the
source archive.
