Pretty much a long and boring manual process.  I did something like

find . -name \*.cs -print0 | xargs -0 -e svn ps svn:eol-style native

i.e. tried to set the eol-style property on all C# source files.  This
won't do anything if the property is set and tell you it has changed
something in "svn status" if it the property hasn't been set before.

svn will also fail if the file in question contains inconsistent line
ends, this is the case for the NUnit doc files and even some of
Lucene.NET sources.

Repeat for all other file extension that should map to text files.

I think Sebb has a bunch of scripts he uses, but never bothered to look
them up.  If so, they'd be inside the comitters svn repo.

For this release you don't even need to check line-feeds, the properties
have not been set on all files.  The patch I provided a while ago only
applied to trunk.  To me this is no reason to stop the release, in
particular since most files have Windows line-ends and Prescott built
the release on Windows so the files would be the same with and without
svn:eol-style anyway.

I intend to provide a new patch for the 3.0.3 branch once you have
decided which way to go.  Most likely there'll be files without license
headers in that branch as well.
