Essentially yes. Take a look at svn:eol-style. As a rule of thumb,
this attribute should always be set (usually to "native") for any text

Values other than "native" are sometimes useful. For example, we have
a nightly build machinery setup where a working directory is checked
out on a Unix system, then copied or net-mounted from a Windows system
that has to build some of the bits. The source files can be "native",
because the Windows compilers accept Unix line endings in the
sources. But control files, like the "project" files, need Windows
line endings. So we set eol-style to CRLF for those.
