Thanks for the quick responses! My situation is that the git side is entirely whatever github.org is running; presumably the latest stable version? They provide a URL for repositories hosted there that can be accessed by an SVN client--somewhere on github is the 'git-svn bridge' (as I understand it): something that receives SVN requests, translates them to git-speak, and replies with what SVN expects.
There is indeed a .gitattributes file in the repository, but the SVN client doesn't know what to do with it. My hope was that something in the bridge code, that translated SVN requests to git and back, could take the SVN request, "Please give me this file; I'm on Windows" look at the .gitattributes file in the repository, and hand out a file with CR/LF's in it. Conversely, when SVN tells git "Here is the new version of the file to check in," the bridge could look at the file, realize it had CR/LF's in it, look at the .gitattributes file to know if it needed to be converted, and then convert it appropriately. I can imagine a full-blown bridge that could even translate the SVN EOL propset back and forth appropriately, but I'm not sure if going that far is necessary and/or helpful. I don't know if this is the right mailing list for that particular bit of software, but it at least seemed like a good place to start.
