Bugzilla converts patch to CRLF line endings?

I’ve submitted patched for the ports I maintain by copy/pasting the svn diff output into the Bugzilla attachment form for a long time.  The committer working on https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=226941 noticed that the patch apparently has CRLF line endings, making it hard(er) to apply it properly.

Working on a Mac with Terminal and Safari, I have not have noticed any such behaviour. When I copy/paste from Bugzilla into Terminal, everything works just fine, so I can do „cd /usr/ports/cat/port; patch -p0“ then paste and ^D.

When I download the attachment from the „raw“ attachment link (in my example https://bz-attachments.freebsd.org/attachment.cgi?id=191852) with curl or wget, I do get to see CR-LF.

Where does that happen? And is that a bug or a feature?
