   I've read that, and frankly I don't know what to do with it. :-) I
kind of assumed that "native" was default, and since that wasn't
working, I assumed I was doing something wrong.

   I don't understand what this property thing is. Is it metadata
attached to each file? Because I don't want to have to explicitly set
native newline encoding in each file.

   As per suggestion in the docs, I tried setting
"enable-auto-props=yes" under "[miscellany]" in conf/svnserver.conf, and
then putting "* = svn:eol-style=native" under "[auto-props]" in the same
file, but the problem remains.

Kind Regards,
Jan Danielsson
