Normalizing line endings on files for Git

3 minute read

I had a repo that suffered an unconventional fork, in other works, someone decided copy it and work outside Git —or any other version control system :dizzy_face:. After that, the fork was set as a Subversion repo and store in a local server. To bring those changes back to the original repo, I had to set it up as a non related branch of the origi...
