The themes directory has been having some problems lately where everything seems to work, but the theme itself doesn’t make it into the SVNSVN Apache Subversion (often abbreviated SVN, after its command name svn) is a software versioning and revision control system. Software developers use Subversion to maintain current and historical versions of files such as source code, web pages, and documentation. Its goal is to be a mostly compatible successor to the widely used Concurrent Versions System (CVS). WordPress core and the released code are all centrally managed through SVN.

After getting ahold of one of these themes and some debugging, I finally figured out that the SVN import of the theme is failing because of an error message of “svn: Inconsistent line ending style” on one of the theme’s files.

Is there some way we can adjust the theme repo’s properties to account for this correctly, or should I modify the upload script to run something like dos2unix over all the files in the themes?

I will go ahead and modify the upload script to detect the failed SVN condition and to not do the extra stuff like create the ticket in the themes repo and so on, to prevent this from being an issue.
