when running python.exe -m venv on Windows,
It creates several activate scripts.
The activate bash script has the wrong line endings (it should be unix-style, not windows-style).
Bash scripts should always end with unix style line endings

venv copies the scripts in binary mode, but apparently the Unix "activate" script already has CRLF line endings when Python is installed in Windows. Probably the POSIX "Lib/venv/scripts/common/activate" script needs a line-ending exception in ".gitattributes":
