I just wonder why you get that idea now. We had a test repository online
since I don't know - 2 months? Changing this now would mean to touch
every f*** file in the repository ;(

But there is another reason why I'm afraid I have to do another admin
round with the subversion repository: the conversion missed quite some
files in branches and tags that saw no change from /trunk. Fixing that
the clean way would mean to run the svn repository through a script
that fixes them. That script could patch the eol-style then to LF where it's
