Subversion handles end-of-line translation a bit differently from CVS.
In Subversion, individual files need to be marked with both a mime-type
and, for text files, an eol-style. These attributes determine how the
Subversion client does end-of-line translation when communicating with
the server. To maintain these properties requires some initial
configuration of your Subversion client, described here under the "MIME
types..." section:

The Subversion repository will verify that you have set the mime-type
and eol-style properly when you try to commit, and will reject any
commits that contain files without an appropriate MIME type. The
configuration information above will automate the process of adding
mime-types and eol-styles to new files, so the handling of end-of-line
translation should be transparent in most cases.

For more information about Subversion properties and how they are used
with end-of-line translation, see:
