- Add note about preserving FL line endings on Windows. Failure to do so causes about 30 tests to fail.
- Check out is two words when used as a verb.
AFAIK the eol type is decided by svn based the svn:eol-style property, so as long the files were checked in correctly and you do not override it specifically while svn checkout, it just works.
Did you encounter problems with eol ?
Like many folks, I use git-svn, and I had git's core.autocrlf config set to
true, which worked fine when working on LLDB (which I've been doing for
about a year). The first time I tried to run Clang tests, however, I got
about 30 failures because of the CR+LFs.
My opinion is that the tests are too fragile if they can't handle platform
native line separators, but until we fix that, the note seems useful.
Ah, OK, I am using regular svn and thus did not counter this problem.
Could you detail this exactly, the problem happens when using git-svn with core.autocrlf config=true but not with svn?
LGTM with this addition.
