Re: [PATCH] issue #890: Implementation of Custom keywords

From: Kimitake <kimitake_at_gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 21 Oct 2008 01:02:18 -0700

In svn_subst_build_keywords3 method (subst.c) checks
custom keyword and if there is a custom keyword in
the property, the method returns from the loop.
So other keyword won't be checked.

I just deleted it and made sure all keywords were expanded correctly.

I will check http://subversion.tigris.org/hacking.html#patches
and then send a patch.
