Please let me know if this feature request should be discussed elsewhere first. I would like a text=input feature added that has the same behavior as text=auto, except that it defaults to core.autocrlf=input behavior instead of core.autocrlf=true. This would ensure that the repository is normalized and the text files in the working directory match what is in the repository by default. This difference in behavior is highlighted in green:


This feature would greatly benefit source indexing using my SourceLink project ctaggart/SourceLink#20. I mistakenly reported this as a bug to libgit2 as text=auto should only change workdir files when core.autocrl=true, but was directed here. I tested with git version

This isn't a windows-specific request, so please take it upstream.
