A diff to change end of line endings on all files is a perversion of
that purpose. If he is shipping a tar.gz file, he should be shipping
it with unix EOL markers. Correcting bugs in upstream tar files is an
acceptable reason to deviate from upstream source.
So yes, this is a good idea to repack it rather than diff the heck
