Hello Tal,

The systems team has just now updated the cvs server 'cvswrappers' file to know about .woff .otf and .ttf as being binary files.


A new file should cvs add as binary, now. Please check and let us know if it doesn't work.

For existing files, already cvs added as ASCII, I am told that 

  cvs admin --binary foo.woff 

will mark that file as having changed to binary. It can then be cvs committed to ensure that no CR/LF/CRLF mangling happens and no CVS keyword substitution takes place.

If these both work then it should be possible to update in the current directory structure.

If cvs admin doesn't do the trick but the new file add does work, then a new directory structure should fix the issues.

Tracker, this relates to ACTION-85: Find out from mac users how to set binary in the commandline cvs
