Yeah, this can be nasty to stuff in a pre-commit hook. The use of the
"native" EOL setting is almost always a mistake, especially with CIFS
or NFS shared working directories. These cross-platform working copies
are actually quite common for Java developers, especially becauase
they often prefer the TortoiseSVN tool for managing their working
If you're publishing content for multiple operating systems, I'd
question trying to outsmart people with pre-commit hooks. Sometimes,
for example when publishing text documents like README.txt, you need
to publish and store documents with the EOL stored for the other OS.
