I've always known chomp to respect the value of $/; so chomp($rec)
whould only cut out whatever $rs is, and be a no-op if $rs is undef.

Subtle difference, that chomp() still sees $/ as "\n".
$/ is only undef inside get_record.

I think the chomp is necessary. In git-svn.perl /^sub get_commit_entry {:

	# <snip>
	open my $log_fh, '>', $commit_editmsg or croak $!;

	# <snip>
		$msgbuf =~ s/\s+$//s;

	# <snip>

		print $log_fh $msgbuf or croak $!;

	# <snip>
	close $log_fh or croak $!;

# Above, we ensured the contents of $commit_editmsg has no trailing newline

	if ($_edit || ($type eq 'tree')) {
		chomp(my $editor = command_oneline(qw(var GIT_EDITOR)));
		system('sh', '-c', $editor.' "$@"', $editor, $commit_editmsg);
	}

# However, $editor is likely to introduce a trailing newline

	rename $commit_editmsg, $commit_msg or croak $!;
	{
		require Encode;
		# SVN requires messages to be UTF-8 when entering the repo
		open $log_fh, '<', $commit_msg or croak $!;
		binmode $log_fh;

# chomp trailing newline introduced by $editor:

		chomp($log_entry{log} = get_record($log_fh, undef));
