add: introduce "--renormalize"
Make it safer to normalize the line endings in a repository. Files that had been commited with CRLF will be commited with LF. The old way to normalize a repo was like this: # Make sure that there are not untracked files $ echo "* text=auto" >.gitattributes $ git read-tree --empty $ git add . $ git commit -m "Introduce end-of-line normalization" The user must make sure that there are no untracked files, otherwise they would have been added and tracked from now on. The new "add --renormalize" does not add untracked files: $ echo "* text=auto" >.gitattributes $ git add --renormalize . $ git commit -m "Introduce end-of-line normalization" Note that "git add --renormalize <pathspec>" is the short form for "git add -u --renormalize <pathspec>". While at it, document that the same renormalization may be needed, whenever a clean filter is added or changed.
