sorceforge shows dat files as binary

Hi everybody,

I was looking at the web interface to SVN @ sourceforge - looking at recent changes (diffs). I found out that .dat files are considered to be binary, and thus no diff is shown. On the other hand .tab and .conf files are shown. See e.g.

If I do "svn diff" at my computer I can see diffs for .dat files normally.

Is that something we could change? Or might it be just my user setting of the web interface?


When checking in a dat file set it to svn:eol-style native

svn add xyz.dat
svn ps svn:eol-style native xyz.dat

You can use wildcards with them too.
