The fact that you have svn:eol-style set up in the auto-props section of
your subversion config will only apply that setting to files that *you*
add. You need to ensure that every text file in the repository has that
property. And if they haven't, you should disable commit emails before
applying that property. When we did it on the TSVN repo a while back we
got a 22MByte commit mail because almost every file changed :-(

Similar, but if you need help sorting out a tricky problem you need to
be more precise in your description, otherwise we are just guessing what
you mean. The repository is the central data store that holds the
history of all revisions, and it normally resides on a server. You
cannot edit files directly in the repository. You need to use a
subversion client to checkout a working copy (WC). The WC normally
resides on your local hard drive and is where you edit files and commit

The term 'local repo' would normally be taken to mean a repository
created on your local machine (eg. using TSVN's 'Create Repository Here'
command) which only you can access using file:// URLs. You still have to
checkout a working copy to edit the files.
