I've been trying to set properties in my repo with a command similar to:
svn.exe propset --revprop -r HEAD svn:externals "https://devsubversion/svn/Development/Trunk/Projects/XCCS/Exports@1394 Externals/XCCS" https://devsubversion/svn/Development_TEST/Tags/SiteWatch/RC_1/Projects/SiteWatch/
svn reports it worked "property 'svn:externals' set on repository revision 1496" however nothing is changed. I tried slik svn client, the one that comes with tortoise as well as one compiled on a linux box. Same results. I've tried -file, variations on the format of the external without the pin revision..etc.. No luck.
Perhaps a bug in VisualSVN server (what we're using currently). However I thought I'd ask the list first to see if this is a known problem. Or maybe the format is just wrong.
And yes, I have a pre-prop hook.
I ended up working around this by checking out locally, setting props and commit.. that works fine.
