Integration of Cakephp Internationalization and GIT

We have discovered in a recent implementation of Internationalization that GIT can corrupt the POEdit generated *.po and *.mo files.

Upon committing updated files GIT by default will replace the LF with CRLF in these files.   These files cannot be tampered with after generation,  even viewing the files with most windows based editor may corrupt them. 

The fix for this problem is to modify the local developers GIT configuration,  adding a ".gitattributes" file to the repository.

The .gitattribute file contains the directive to ignore crlf.

In this case we are specifically ignoring crlf in the LOCALE subdirectory, where the *PO and *MO files reside.  This does not affect the *.POT file which is the human

editable catalogue of word conversions.
