Same thing for openhab-core 3.2.x

GitHub main branch and 3.2.x branch point to same code.

Switched branch. Now using 3.2.1-SNAPSHOT

Same error with 3.2.1-SNAPSHOT

Building on windows is a bit difficult and requires special git configuration due to the line endings. IIRC for me it worked to set

git config --global core.autocrlf true
git config --local core.eol crlf

I believe the first setting is the standard setting.

Thank you very much. That worked!

In some cases spotless:apply can fix some of troubles as well. It does complain by default but it is also able to recover basic mistakes. Not sure about line endings, but in general it is able to format files.
