|+# We don't want Git to mess with line endings.|
|+# Most files in this repository have Unix-style endings (\n), and Windows devs|
|+# have myriad options for editing them; thus it isn't necessary to convert line|
|+# endings when checking out files into a working directory.|
|+# Meanwhile, some files *must* have Windows line endings (\r\n), like the jQuery|
|+# library, which must be bit-identical to the official release to avoid review|
|+# by AMO reviewers; thus they mustn't be converted when committed to the object|
|+# We could dicker with individual files or leave it up to individual developers,|
|+# but it's simpler and less trouble-prone to set a consistent policy, so we do.|
|+# Disable line-ending conversion for all files on older versions of Git.|
