'svnadmin load-revprops' as first-level command?
I was going through the 1.10 release notes and I found the new
load-revprops / dump-revprops subcommands:
New svnadmin dump-revprops and svnadmin load-revprops subcommands
[…] svnadmin dump-revprops will save the current values of all
revision properties to a dump file. svnadmin load-revprops can be
used to set revision properties in a repository to the values saved
in a dump file.
I don't dispute the need for such functionality, but is a separate
top-level command the right home for it? I would have expected
'load-revprops' to be spelled "svnadmin load --only-revprops" or even
"svndumpfilter revprops-only | svnadmin load".
The rationale is that 'load' and 'load-revprops' take exactly the same
data format and manipulate it in exactly the same way.
(I smoke-tested this on IRC and Karl agreed.)
