Re: Interpretation of SVN MIME type property

From: Andreas Keil <rien_at_nurfuerspam.de>

Does anyone follow up this problem of SVN interpreting application/* MIME
type files as binary? As a quick fix, this behaviour should be removed
immediately as it's simply wrong. New solutions for determining whether a
file contains binary or text data could be postponed and seeked in a
thorough discussion but this bug should be fixed as soon as possible.

For the solution discussion: Why not use SVN's already existing heuristics
for determining a file's content and stick with SVN's eol-style property
(adding an "unchanged" or "original" value) for giving the user a chance to
deviate from SVN's guess?

Andreas.
