Change value of svn:special boolean?

Hello everybody,

I'd like to change the definition of the "svn:special" property.

Currently [1] svn ignores the value of the "svn:special" property, and always
puts a "*" in there; I'd like to store the type of the special file,
ie. "link" for symlinks, and (in FSVS at least) "bdev" and "cdev", too.

It's mostly used by svn itself (and normally not looked at by the user
directly) it should not be a big problem.

If that change is approved, I'll happily provide a patch for the documentation
and tell the GUI developers about this change - so that the values stored by
FSVS can be efficiently used.

May I ask for you opinions?



Ad 1: I looked at the sources in trunk/ r30628; there's always just a check
whether that property exists.

Versioning your /etc, /home or even your whole installation?
             Try fsvs (fsvs.tigris.org)!
