      Description

      There have been many files in our CVSs that have non-UNIX end-of-line markers. Apache CVS stores all files in UNIX format. However, some CVS clients allow inconsistent line-endings to creep in. This propagates the problem to the distributions and thence to the users. In some circumstances such inconsistencies are known to cause runtime problems.

      Here is some discussion about the issue:

      This Jira task will help us to plan, fix, and monitor the problem.
