RE: Standardize on ASCII type: dos2unix pre-commit hook?

I hope soon there's a server side control feature for this. Setting auto
props per user just doesn't make any sense to me and if user set their own,
wouldn't there be a conflict? I tried to implement this feature on my
server and I was told it yet doesn't exist or not possible.

Does there exist a way to manage this mechanism (svn:eol-style property, or
anything else) such that "ASCII standarizations" will be made regardless of
client-side settings?

In other words, is this a client-side setting or a server-side setting? Or
is this question pertinent?

If it's a client-side setting, then it's not nearly as useful to me. This
goes back to the general issue I have with subversion where I can't manage
the properties of clients from a single point (namely the server), which
would be much more powerful, in my opinion. Is there any move afoot for
future subversion changes to support a single-point-of-client control?
