The msysgit list msys...@googlegroups.com may be a better place for this.

It is likely that you have a windows specific EOL conversion set within the wider config's (i.e. --system, --global). You may have core.safecrlf set which does a round trip test so tests the conversion both ways.


The normal canonical line ending choice is LF in the repo.

I don't have a W7 install to compare against.

Subject: Bug in EOL conversion?


Hi,

The EOL conversion does not behave as indicated by output message from
add and commit. Here is my test case executed on Windows 7 64 bit.


$ git --version

-- Now let's init repository.

----------+ 1 Stefan None 2 Jan 23 01:55 withlf.txt

-- So no changes (see file size) to files in working directory. This
is expected and according to output warning from add and commit.

-- Now lets look in the repository

$ git ls-tree -l HEAD withcrlf.txt
100644 blob d00491fd7e5bb6fa28c517a0bb32b8b506539d4d 2 withcrlf.txt
$ git ls-tree -l HEAD withlf.txt
100644 blob d00491fd7e5bb6fa28c517a0bb32b8b506539d4d 2 withlf.txt

-- Note that size of withlf.txt is 2 in repository indicating that LF
was not replaced by CRLF in withlf.txt as indicated in output from add
and commit. Also note that size of withcrlf.txt is also 2 in
repository so it looks like CRLF was replaced by LF in withcrlf.txt.
To verify I will delete the files from working directory, turn off EOL
conversion, checkout files and look at file endings in the working
directory.

-- Both files in working directory files now have LF line endings
confirming that files in repository have LF file endings. Either the
output message of add and commit is wrong or the behavior of the EOL
conversion is wrong... or... have I missed something...?
