[PATCH] svn_load_dirs.pl: execute bit on files triggers an "add"

From: Mark Reibert <svn_at_reibert.com>
Date: 2007-03-22 08:46:11 CET

Hello,

svn_load_dirs.pl will set "svn:executable" on any executable plain file,
even those that have not changed (MD5). This triggers the file to be
processed as an addition to the repository and copied from the import
directory into the staging working copy. This behavior seem
unintentional (or at least inconsistent) since all other properties (via
the -p option) are set only for newly added files. More importantly, it
will trigger a failure if the target in the staging working copy is
read-only. (That issue coming in another post.)

[[[

  Set "svn:executable" only for newly added (executable) files.
]]]
