I miss a reference to a Subversion branch on this page.

I tried in a bash shell the following:
$ grep -rl $'\r\n' . | grep -v '\.\(png\|gif\|jpeg\|pdf\|jpg\|vcproj\|svg\)'

I explicitely added SVG files as most miss a svn:eol-style native
property in Subversion which should be fixed as SVG are ordinary text
files. Remaining files (reordered):

Probably missing svn:eol-style native property:




The file permissions are according to

$ find -exec ls -l {} \; | cut -d" " -f1 | sort | uniq

probably OK, except that many files are bogusly marked executable:
$ find -exec ls -l {} \; | grep -- "-rwxr-xr-x"
-rwxr-xr-x 1 jens jens 2610 2007-07-06 21:47 rst.css
-rwxr-xr-x 1 jens jens 1755 2007-11-15 17:31 ./tools/buildbot/config/master/alpha/master.cfg
-rwxr-xr-x 1 jens jens 1143 2006-09-13 19:25 ./tools/inspect/minmax_check.hpp
-rwxr-xr-x 1 jens jens 4470 2008-02-04 18:42 id646983-bb.html
[many many files snipped]

Check for the svn:executable property and delete it (and forbid commits
from Windows users if they do not respect it :-))
