[Fedora-packaging] Use of dos2unix in %prep

While a package was being reviewed, the reviewer picked up on a use of
the 'dos2unix --keepdate' command:


The guidelines do indeed say not to use dos2unix, because quote "that
can cause build fail on FC3" (like I care).


But I've used dos2unix before, and it appears that using 'dos2unix
--keepdate' is a superior solution because it keeps the original
timestamp, and is generally simpler and more obvious to people reading
the specfile.

So is this guideline for real?
