Yeah, this is what we do in Beehive as well. My suggestion would be to document the SVN configuration settings for OpenJPA committers in something like DEVELOPING.txt at the top-level of the project. Over time as new committers come on board, just make sure that they're aware of this and use it in their environments.
Eventually you'll reach a stable state where most commits are correct and then just do what Dain said -- fix the eol-style across the depot. Our instructions are here: http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/beehive/trunk/DEVELOPING.txt Eddie On 2/1/07, Dain Sundstrom <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:
About once a quarter in the Geronimo project, someone writes a script to fix all of the properties in the tree. This is because people normally forget to set these properties, or their IDE doesn't apply them. It would be nice if there were a cron job to update the properties once a week. -dain On Feb 1, 2007, at 12:59 PM, Patrick Linskey wrote: > So for OpenJPA, the [auto-props] section should include the > following as > well: > > *.java: svn:eol-style=LF > *.properties: svn:eol-style=LF > *.xml: svn:eol-style=LF > > I haven't tried this out yet, but TFM claims that those are the > correct > values.
