How to have Git store CRLF in index

I use git-svn at work and people are constantly complaining that I’m committing LF‘s instead of CRLF‘s. (We’re mostly a Windows shop).

As far as I can tell, when core.autocrlf is true the working copy is CRLF, when false it’s LF, and when input it’s left untouched. I like the autocrlf = true as a concept, but I wish it would default to CRLF in the index since that’s what get’s committed to SVN.

    I’ve seen core.eol, but this also seems to only set what the working copy uses, not the index.

    You’ll want to add a file named .gitattributes to the root of your project. This will force everyone to commit same line ending. In you case, as you want to force crlf, you’ll add this line in the .gitattributes:

    * text eol=crlf
    

    Then, you can also normalize every files in your repo once, and never bother about it again: Trying to fix line-endings with git filter-branch, but having no luck

    You can also refer to github guide on line ending: https://help.github.com/articles/dealing-with-line-endings

    It turns out that git-svn uses the svn:eol-style property from SVN to decide how to store the line endings. If you go into a pure SVN checkout & add svn:eol-style set to native, Git will use CRLF for Windows and LF for Linux/OSX.

    I also have these settings:

    $ git config core.autocrlf false
    $ git config core.safecrlf true
    

    I don’t have anything in my .gitattributes file.
