[postgis-devel] Current master branch of postgis causing clone issues ?

Hello all,

I see something weird in PostGIS at the moment.
When I do:
mkdir ~/git
cd ~/git
git clone git at github.com:postgis/postgis.git
cd postgis
git status

I notice the following:
modified:   extras/tiger_geocoder/create_geocode.bat
modified:   extras/tiger_geocoder/upgrade_geocoder.bat

Although, I didn't modify these files.  I just did a regular clone.

I suspect the .gitattributes file has something to do with it.
The 2 files impacted are Windows files, so probably have the wrong
carriage-return type.
And, in the .gitattributes file, I see this rule:
*.bat       eol=crlf
So, I think this forces a change after clone.

I suspect this problem was introduced in the latest commit from 8/17 (it
seems the endline changes were committed there).

Does anyone else see this problem?  Is this something that can be fixed?
