RE: RE: Cygwin/svn;v105: binary files specified with eol-style:nativegetting crlf-corrupted

I don't know anything about the previous thread, but...

It seems that Subversion works properly on binary mounted file systems.
However, I would still assert that the fact that it doesn't work on text
mounted filesystems is a bug in the Cygwin port of Subversion.
Subversion should open files in binary mode (except, of course, when
line-ending conversion is desired).

An explanation of text and binary modes in Cygwin is available here:
<http://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/using-textbinary.html>.
