Thank you for reporting this. I can reproduce this on RA-local. It was me that added the description of the "list" output fields to the book and to the help recently, and I wrote "'P' if the file has any properties" based on a guess from reading the source code. I don't actually know whether that is the intended meaning of that field. Thinking about it now, it is not a very useful meaning because it doesn't scale well: in a large project, it is quite likely that every item has properties (EOL-style, project-specific properties, ...). Maybe the intended meaning is something else, and just the description is wrong.

So, developers, what's to become of that field and its description?

It could be because the files were checked in to the repository without Apache knowing the user name. You have to configure authentication in order to get user names. Try "svn info README.htm". If it does not say "Last commit author: <your username>" then that is probably the problem.
