Hi Patrick,

Again, I'll be happy to change the metadata once it is known what the 
EOL setting should be.  Any file with the "as-is" value will store on 
commit whatever line endings are on the client.  If a developer does as 
I did and inadvertently changes the line endings on his client before 
check in, all of the line endings for that file will change in the 
repository.  The only way to restore it to its original state is to 
change them on the client again and recheck them in.

Changing the EOL metadata is a great idea, but what value do you want 
all of the "as-is" files (about 60% of the files) to take?  And a 
related question, when should the end of line metadata for a file be 

My suggestion is that we regiment the EOL setting for all text files to 
"native".  It looks like we may have started down that path, since about 
40% of the text files have that setting.
