RE: Re: Standardize on ASCII type: dos2unix pre-commit hook?

I have to agree with Res. I've tried to use auto props too and it wasn't
flexible enough to integrate in my environment. In fact, the current way
to do it looks more like a workaround for a feature that has been
forgotten by the developers. Something on the server would be better (a
true recursive property that's automatically applied when you add a file
under a directory that has this property set ?)

Regards,
Jean-Pol.

What do you mean, "if user set their own, wouldn't there be a conflict"?

I would suggest that you have a config file which specifies the
automatic properties you want. Distribute this to all users. Then
have a pre-commit hook which rejects files which do not have the
required properties. Then there can be no problem.

Well, of course there can be a problem of a user needing to work with
two different repositories which have two different auto-props
policies. That's not handled well right now. Sure, you can tell the
svn command to use a different config file, but it's tedious and
error-prone to specify that for each and every svn command.
