Martin v. Löwis:
Or don't you understand why that single unresolved item didn't manage to revert the decision? Well, there are many unresolved items in the Mercurial conversion, some much more stressful than the eol issue (e.g. the branching discussion).
Then these issues should have been included in the initial PEP for choosing a DVCS since the issues could have driven the choice. PEP 374 implies that win32text effectively solves the Windows eol issue which no longer appears to be correct.
