Which files specifically? Shouldn't CVS take care of this? Or, if
you're unpacking one of the Zip files doesn't your zip program have
an option for converting these?

DOS/Windows can have problems with Unix style line endings. It just
all depends on the program that's using the file. In any event, I
really thought this was an issue that was supposed to be addressed by
CVS and the tool used to unpack zip packages?
