[HTTPS-E Rulesets] Line endings in default.rulesets; website incorrectly updated; also UCSD suggestion

To whom it may concern:

As of 2.0development.2, the default.rulesets file contains mixed Mac
and Unix line endings (that is, mixed CRs and LFs). This makes it
difficult to view correctly in common text editors, since no single
setting will allow all the line endings to display properly. I have
tried Notepad, WordPad, Notepad++, and Notepad2 (all on Windows).
Please convert the file to use consistent line endings, or at least
suggest Windows software that can correctly interpret the line
endings. If it'll be a while until the next dev build, could you post
the corrected file either as an attachment or on some pastebin site?

Following an update earlier today,
https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere/development and
https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere/faq have the same content as
https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere ; is this intentional? Also, I
cannot see a link to the changelog (
https://www.eff.org/files/Changelog.txt ) on the redesigned page.
Please investigate at your earliest convenience.

Regarding the UCSD ruleset, I have found that www. cse. ucsd. edu
exists and has exactly the same content as www-cse. ucsd. edu . The
existing rule should probably be updated to take this into account

As usual, thank you for your time and help.
