Subversion properties documentation

Hello everybody,

after some lengthy debate with Stefan K√ľng on the TortoiseSVN dev@ mailing
list I'd like to ask whether there's some central point for the known
subversion properties.

I know that the "svn:" namespace is reserved for subversion, and that other
should have their own namespaces - but are these documented anywhere, is
there a wiki page where all software authors using subversion can put their
property names, or something like that?

I'm asking specifically because of the property names used in the meta-data
branch; I'd like to make them "official" in some way, to avoid possible
incompatible re-use by some other branch.

I did run a "svn log --stop-on-copy" on the various branches, and it seems
that the only change of svn_props.h is in the meta-data branch (some others
got merges of "svn:sync-*" from trunk).

So another solution could be that I post a patch for detailed documentation of
the properties used in the meta-data branches in svn_props.h.
(With a comment "only used in the meta-data branches at ...", etc.)

What's the preferred way?

Regards,

Phil
