There's an old ticket [0] noting that startproject/app create files with 
Unix line endings, even on WIndows. My question is whether or not this 
matters. Some things I thought of:

I think version control programs like Git usually normalize line endings 

The proposed change only applies to Python files that the template commands 
are rewriting, not to any other text-based files such as template files 
(the default project/app templates don't have any, but custom project/app 
templates might).

Does makemigrations (and any other management commands that write files) 
already have this behavior?

Thanks for your feedback so we can best spend our time.
