Bitbucket online editor tool and line endings

Hi there,

I edited my README file yesterday with your editor - I never do that - and it changed my file format to CRLF without asking...

First of all it would be nice to know about it when you edit the file and secondly it is pretty bad because when you pull down your file it will create merge conflict.

I think you should default to LF - as indicated by the GIT documentation - or at least warn people about it when using your editor.

Thanks.
