Description Zigger 2004-11-21 02:37:46 UTC
Files in 1.3.8 & HEAD have inconsistent end-of-lines.

Inconsistent processing by different cvs clients & tar-unpackers results in
unnecessary diffs & in later corruption by text editors that assume consistency.

A. These files have CR-LF instead of LF
 maintenance/archives/patch-cache.sql (also HEAD)

B. These files have both LF & CR-LF instead of LF


 7-zip unpacked these from tar with both CR-LF & LF
 WinZip with default "smarts" end-of-line translation produced consistent CR-LF
 Windows cvs client (tortoise/cvsnt) fetched these with both CR & CR-LF
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2004-11-21 06:17:46 UTC
Fixed patch-cache.sql and LanguageNn.php.

The *.lang files are pretty useless, I'm not sure why they ever got checked in. I've removed them.
Comment 2 Zigger 2004-12-10 13:24:10 UTC
LanguagEl.php also has inconsistent end-of-lines in both 1.4beta2 download and
cvs (REL1_4 & HEAD).
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2004-12-11 23:16:05 UTC
Fixed LanguageEl.php
