[gnugo-devel] .dsp and .dsw files

while i was working under windows, i constantly had problems with .dsp and 
.dsw files. when i downloaded any file using cvs (wincvs), its line ends were 
automatically converted to windows format: from a standard LF to CR, LF used 
in dos/windows. this was ok for all files except for .dsp and .dsw ones, 
which had windows-style ended lines on server. so, in my copy i had lines 
ended with CR, CR, LF and they confused visual studio.

here is an excerpt from cvs texinfo documentation:

  File:,  Node: Binary howto,  Prev: Binary why,  Up: Binary files

  How to store binary files

     There are two issues with using CVS to store binary files.  The
> first is that CVS by default converts line endings between the
> canonical form in which they are stored in the repository (linefeed
> only), and the form appropriate to the operating system in use on the
> client (for example, carriage return followed by line feed for Windows
> NT).

so, the question is: do we need windows-style line ends in those files on 
server? i don't know what cvs program Trevor uses, but he told me he never 
had such problems. however, the documentation claims that _any_ cvs program 
should perform such conversion (by default).
