Scott Wallace updated SQ-196:

    Fix Version: M3: summer beta (july)
                     (was: triage)

Explicit need for this has only been mentioned once, but in general it would be good to do this, and it ought to be comparatively "low-hanging fruit"

> From TRAC Ticket #8684 (yoshiki, september 2008)
> When reading a "prefs" file, crlf detection and conversion should be enabled.
> (edmcnierney) Could you provide more information here? In particular, is this a problem with prefs files created within the Activity, or are you asking that we be more liberal about accepting hand-edited files? And which conditions work and don't work? Thanks.
> (bert) On the olpc-sur list a teacher from Uruguay wanted to know where and how to upload her student Etoys projects to the internet. Etoys has this upload capability built-in but it is not exposed on the XO yet (and there is no public server anyway). We replied that one could manually add a preferences file with the server info, but it has to use CRs instead of LFs, which is inconvenient to do on Linux.
