We are evaluating stash. Our current source control system forces text files in Unix format. It looks like something similar can be done with git via the config command.
Does stash provide any way of managing this or is there a way to create the repo like this by default?
Actually I tell a lie. It can be fone via the .gitattributes file.
It would certainly be possible to write a plugin which automatically creates a repository with these settings enabled. There isn't anything on the road map yet, but we will certainly keep it in mind.
You can raise a STASH Jira, and we can track/vote on the feature request there.
To write the plugin (or anyone reading this) you could listen for the RepositoryCreatedEvent, and then use GitScmConfig.getRepositoryDir() to find the directory, manually create the attributes file and commit. The 'tricky' part is know when to apply this behaviour. If you always want the same line-endings then you don't have to worry about configuration screens and such.
I hope this helps.
If you are migrating from Subversion, consider using SVN Importer Plugin for Stash. It converts any SVN repository to Git and keeps all the line ending rules one has enforced for SVN repository (among other things).
You might be interested in this blog post as well, it has a great overview of using .gitattributes file to enforce line endings at Git repository; it also compares Git & SVN techniques of handling EOL bytes.
Hope that helps,
Unfortunately line endings can only be enforced per-client with the auto.crlf configuration flag. This setting cannot be embedded in the actual repository by Stash (or any system), only set locally by users.
Sorry about that.
