Should you really be sending over 600 kb of attachement to a highly
trafficed mailing list?

Subversion doesn't touch the contents of files by default. It sounds like
you might have an auto-prop that is setting svn:eol-style=native on all
files.

You probably should have an auto-prop that is adding
svn:mime-type=application/octet-stream to RPM's.
