Re: Binary Files

I work in a mixed environment: server is on Linux, one user on
Linux, remaining users on Windows. I use eol-style native
on every client and it works fine now but did not on versions
much before 1.0 or 1.0.1. I had the same experience as noted
here-every file on Windows got flagged as modified-even if the
file had never been touched.

I have everything on 1.0.4 . I regularly use the repository from both
Linux and MS Windows clients and the line endings are changed
correctly AND the files are not shown as changed. However, this
is with text files-I currently avoid placing binary files in the
repository. However, once in a while one gets overlooked and
added and it is OK if the internal Subversion detection code classes
it as binary. If not, the file is trashed as would be expected.
A mime-type setting might make it work-have not had the need
yet but may in the future.
