           Summary: fixcrlf should allow removing trailing spaces
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.7.0RC1
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: amichai2@amichais.net


The docs for the fixcrlf task says:
"There is an incompatibility between this and the previous version in the
handling of white space at the end of lines. This version does not remove
trailing whitespace on lines."

I do not know the reasons for removing this functionality, but in any case it
can be made an optional "trailingspaces" parameter which can be set to "asis" or
"remove" just like the "tab" parameter. u can leave the default at "asis" to
preserve current functionality. But why remove this functionality all together?
It's quite useful!
