Folks, the problem is still there, with the very latest Git built with MinGW 
on Windows. Having eol=native in gitattributes means *LF* EOLs on 
Windows/MinGW.

So, essentially, eol=native is completely broken. And this is the most useful 
option to put into gitattributes and share among those working on the project.

Currently, I have to put eol=crlf there, and that means that those working on 
Linux will end up with CRLF files in their working copies.

The link quoted above does contain an additional fix that resolves the 
problem.

Thanks,
