The best way to be ignored on a public mailing list is to demand an
urgent response. Do you really think people are going to drop what
they are doing just because you put that in the title.

You cannot set svn:eol-style on a folder. When you add that property
recursively to a folder it gets applied to all the files which exist
in the folder at that time, but it is not set on the folder. In
consequence, if you subsequently add more files, you have to set the
svn:eol-style on them too - it does not happen automatically.

You can use subversion's auto-props feature, or TortoiseSVN's
tsvn:autoprops feature to ensure this property is added to files with
particular extensions. Look in the manual for more details.
