Subject Re: [Struts Wiki] Update of "StrutsMaintenanceSvn" by TedHusted

I'm -1 on this - it is a really *bad* idea to use "LF" for the eol-style -
having the eol-style property set to "native" is the *right thing* to do.
The problem is that the artifact Wendy is dealing with didn't have its
eol-style property set at all. When she corrects this situation, subversion
is going to correct all the line ending it has stored in its repository for
that artifact. After that when people check it out - it will automatically
translate to the native system and vice-versa when checked back in. - which
is what we want.

Setting it to "LF" is going to cause all of us on windows a real headache -
every time we try to check back in its going to throw an error for any line
endings which are not "LF".

The solution to this issue is for people update their auto-props so that we
don't add new artifacts without eol-style set to native in the first place.
I'm going to revers back the changes you made to the wiki.
