RE: Re: FEATURE REQUEST: Property and Keyword Substitution

I see that an impressive work has already been done.

It is going far beyond what I had in minds.

Looking briefly at the patches it seems that most of the initial
specifications have already been implemented, except the "%p".

What else is missing? Configuration files management?

Thank You,
Serge

The initial code to convert keywords to a hash internally was committed
in December of 2005, see the original incident:

        http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=890

but the design discussion of how to handle properties substituted as
keywords never got restarted. Be sure and review the other open issues
regarding keywords that really should be dealt with as well:

        http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=1975
        http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2219
        http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2514

You should also search the dev list archive here:

        http://svn.haxx.se/dev/

for the various flare-ups in handling keywords...
