RE: multi platform using of subversion

we share WCs between Linux and windows here. And it works just fine, as long
as you use the same SVN version (we've had problems if people used different
versions, but that was usally around the same time that the database layout
changed (dump/load cycle time!)).

And you're right, the end of line thing is the most terrible issue we
encounter here. Luckily, many editors recognize both formats and most of
those write the format they read. But it still is dodgy and sometimes we end
up with endless lines on windows and ^M in linux. Of course, most other
tools (make, gcc etc.) can't cope with incorrect line endings, but xsltproc
seems to be impervious.

That's really all I can comment on it.
