SubjectRe: [PULL] Documentation for 5.5
[ Background for Junio and the git mailing list - Jon's pull request
to me had a lot of whitespace damage from CRLF line endings for some
of the patches he applied. ]

Hmm. I wonder if the CRLF removal is broken in general, or if the
emails are somehow unusual (patches in attachments or MIME-encoded or
something)? Maybe the CRLF was removed from the envelope email lines,
but if the patch is then decoded from an attachment or something it's
not removed again from there?

Can you attach (not forward) one of the (raw) emails that shows the
problem and keep the git mailing list cc'd?
