Raja Aluri created HADOOP-8912:

Summary: adding .gitattributes file to prevent CRLF and LF mismatches for source and text files
Key: HADOOP-8912
URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8912
Project: Hadoop Common
Issue Type: Bug
Components: build
Affects Versions: 1-win
Reporter: Raja Aluri
Fix For: 1-win

Source code in hadoop-common repo has a bunch of files that have CRLF endings.
With more development happening on windows there is a higher chance of more CRLF files getting into the source tree.
I would like to avoid that by creating .gitattributes file which prevents sources from having CRLF entries in text files.

I am adding a couple of links here to give more primer on what exactly is the issue and how we are trying to fix it.
