Tried to send this upstream but it bounced.  Built as 2.2-23.
Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2004-10-11 21:34:29 EDT

Yeah, neither dos2unix and unix2dos seem to have an upstream
maintainer for several years now.  I guess the best thing to do
would be to gather all the patches in our bugzilla together,
gather debian/mandrake/suse/etc. packages, and put up a new
project on sourceforge or somewhere to pull all fixes into one
single place that everyone can then use.  Then each distribution
package maintainer can have write access to the sf repo and things
get fixed in one place.  ;)

Seems to work for me.
