It performs newlines conversions if it's configured to. It's actually
better than subversion in this regard as we can set the policy for a
repo in the gitattributes file, while subversion is based on the
configuration of the person who checks in the file which is why this
is inconsistent in our subversion repo. The problems we're having is
with the subversion to git conversion, not with normal git use.
