Proper handling of line endings is very important! We don’t want to get diffs on every line just because someone checked in CRLFs…

git config --add core.autocrlf input on Linux/OSX,
git config --add core.autocrlf true on Windows.

The rules are not set in stone (yet), we’ll change them as we gather more experience.
These policies are for the official repository, of course. You can work in your own repository as you like, the only rule is that you are responsible for making all patches to apply cleanly on the official repository. The maintainers retain the right to refuse to apply anything that creates merge problems.
