Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6538
No dos2unix and unix2dos utils in the entire distribution

These are essential for developers who want to work on both
platforms. Two old products with these respective names
are in the cotrib section of redhat but I think that:
1. they should be in the distribution.
2. they should be revised since I looked them over and the
code there looks like it came from out of space...
3. they are not packages right (this concerns the srpms...).
These tools are so small that I think they cetainly shouldnt
be in different packages, they should have a single
maintainer and probably be added to some other text tools
console package which deals with similar conversions (like
csv2tab and other convertors).
this is easily handled via one line sed scripts. we may include such scripts in
a later release.
