AW: [RFC] Server Dictated Configuration

Hi, Johan,

Von: Johan Corveleyn [mailto:jcorvel_at_gmail.com]

> Perhaps this issue can be deferred if the API would allow you to get / cache all the inheritable props, up to the repository root (since they are always readable anyway, regardless of authz). Not only "up to the nearest path-wise ancestor that has the property", but "give me everything up to the root". Then the concrete consumer of the prop can always add special syntax and corresponding inheritance / override / append behavior specific to its uses (a special syntax that defines how the multiple inherited props are to be "overlayed").

What about "svn:i:propname" defines inheritable properties, and "svn:o:propname" defines overlayable properties. The first one just goes to the nearest path-wise ancestor, while the latter one reads all of the properties up to the root.

And then let the property-consumers define a syntax or whatever to resolve the overlays for their specific use case.

Best regards
