Also consider: any plans to change the date in the copyright headers
to 2015 at the same time, since a mass update is being planned for
that specific day?

currently eclipselink sources contains mix of line endings -
some files are using *nix style (LF), some win style (CRLF) and
the rest is a mix of *nix and win style (some lines end with LF
while others with CRLF). Since we are at the beginning of 2.7
development it looks like a good time to me to unify line endings
in our codebase to avoid complete rewrites of files in the future.
Why we should do that?
-make it easier to review incoming as well as own (outgoing)
-avoid noise in git log
-use https://help.github.com/articles/dealing-with-line-endings as
a guide to properly set up local development environment
-one-time full rewrite of some files in the repository
-some backports to previous streams will require manual
if there will be an agreement, I'd like to perform the change
next week, on Friday March 27, 2015
Which line endings should be used?
either *nix or win but definitely not a mix of them in one file
How to cast your vote?
