Download File as RAW does not respect core.autocrlf = true

Hey folks.

We have RhodeCode Enterprise on a Windows system.

When I use my git client to download a file, it has Windows style line endings (CRLF). When I use the web browser and download the file by clicking Download RAW, the file has Unix-style line endings (LF). See attached file.

I logged into my Windows server and executed the following command:
C:\Users\Enphase Energy>git config --system --get core.autocrlf

I do see that that core.autocrlf = true, which means that git should convert LF to CRLF when checking out text files (to Windows-style).

It appears that the RhodeCode web interface does not respect this setting--it is checking the file out as-is.

Is this intended?

    RhodeCode doesn't really read the gitconfiguration, as most of the stuff is implemented in pure python.

    We have line endings converter in RhodeCode but it's not enabled for raw files, i think we need to discuss a solution for further versions of RhodeCode. If this is something critical for you, i can probably come up with a simple patch that fixes that, if you're interested ?
