I searched the database, but could not find an issue for this.

I would characterize the issue this way:
- it would be nice to specify properties either on a per repository
  or per directory basis, and have all entities which fall under
  that repository or directory to have those properties.
  One example would be to specify for a project
  that svn:keywords expands $Id$, and then have svn expand
  $Id$ for all files in that project.

According to Ben, these are some of the parts of the problem:

<sussman> the 3 conflated issues here are:
<sussman> 1. default props for a directory and immediate children?
<sussman> 2. default props for a whole project, or subtree, solved by
+server-side config files
<sussman> 3. property inheritance rules. (yikes)

I can file an issue in Bugzilla with this info if people want,
so that this issue can be more easily tracked.
