At current moment EOL at the end is not guarantied. It is only arised in
some cases. Nobody can expect EOL at the end always. And the "another
Subversion user" must keep it in mind.

Simplest way write hook script or use only "svn commit --message".

I am surprised by policy of applying patches too. Is here something like
"Debian Technical Committee"? Or all decisions maded by folks form
