msysGit is a full native port of Git. I just installed it again to
double check and I do not have any linefeed issues. It even asks me as
part of the install how linefeed option I have. I selected the default
Windows (crlf) option.

You can download the latest msysGit from:

Here are a couple of screenshots I just created:

Show the linefeed option in the setup

I clone the fpGUI repository and made some minor changes to a file. I
viewed the changes using the  "git bash promp" and via "git gui". I
then did a local commit and viewed the changes via "gitk".  In all
cases in only showed the lines that changed.


Out of interest, what version of Git are you using?  Since v1.5.5
(fairly old already) they defaulted the setting config.autocrlf = True
under Windows.

Either way, this is not a thread about Git vs SubVersion. Simply that
I am the primary developer of fpGUI - doing most of the work. And I
find Git fits my workflow much better. I also posted usage
instructions in the fpGUI newsgroup on how to use Git and so far the
other contributors don't have any issues with the switch to Git.
