Files in git repository that are in DOS format

The following files should be converted to unix, unless there is a
good reason for them being in DOS. (Also all of Pod::Parser is in
DOS, but it is hopefully soon going to be removed from core blead, so
there's no real reason to expend effort on it.) I omitted one file
whose name ends in .bat, and some in a Win32 directory, as those
appear to me to likely to want to be in DOS.

./cpan/Text-ParseWords/t/ParseWords.t
./cpan/JSON-PP/t/107_allow_singlequote.t
./cpan/JSON-PP/t/106_allow_barekey.t
./cpan/JSON-PP/t/105_esc_slash.t
./cpan/CPAN-Meta/t/data-fixable/1927486199-META.yml
./cpan/Parse-CPAN-Meta/corpus/BadMETA.yml
./symbian/ext/Moped/Msg/Msg.pkg
./symbian/ext/Moped/Msg/bld.inf
./symbian/ext/Moped/Msg/Msg.mmp
The files under cpan/ are maintained upstream on CPAN, so a change ought to originate upstream.

As for the files under symbian, they are maintained by (or, at least, last modified by) Jarkko, so I would recommend consulting with him first.

Thank you very much.

    Umm, might I ask the reverse and ask ... why?

    I'm no fan of "curliff", quite the reverse, but what is the problem here that such conversion is trying to address? Perl code should be fine with either "unixy" or "dossy", ditto for git.

    As for the Symbian files: do not convert them to UNIX, things are quite likely to break if they are converted. (Though I have no idea whether the thing anymore builds at all, Symbian being quite dead.)

    That was a statement from the recently abdicated pumpking, and the
    current one concurred.

    It caused me quite a bit of pain to deal with these in Pod::Checker. It
    appears to be a bug in git (v2.5), and I had to get someone else
    involved (using an earlier git) to actually get stuff into blead.
    As for the Symbian files: do not convert them to UNIX, things are quite likely to break if they are converted. (Though I have no idea whether the thing anymore builds at all, Symbian being quite dead.)
