Ryan, thanks for the reply

AFAIK, svn doesn't apply the svn:eol-tyle property to binary files but
rather returns an error message, so that's fine.

The subversion book says:

"Multiple matches on a file will result in multiple propsets for that
file; however, there is no guarantee that auto-props will be applied in
the order in which they are listed in the config file, so you can't have
one rule “override” another."

that's why I would like to know if anyone has experience with multiple
matches and whats the best order?

Also, maybe there is away to tell svn to apply svn:eol-style=native to
*, but not *.pdf etc?
