Can anyone explain why core.autoccrlf=true makes Git replace LF with CRLF
on Linux? Full reproduction:
$ cat /etc/redhat-release; git --version
Fedora release 17 (Beefy Miracle)
git version 126.96.36.199
$ git config -l
$ rm -rf test; mkdir test; cd test; git init; echo bar >foo.txt; git add
Initialized empty Git repository in /tmp/test/.git/
warning: LF will be replaced by CRLF in foo.txt.
The file will have its original line endings in your working directory.
