Re: Proposal: new fsfs.conf properties

I flipped *back* to Python's requests.put(..) in my solution - from a
regular Svn client. That relies on 'autoversioning=on' for it to work over
DAV, I mean. In that configuration it functions like curl, of course.

*Commit Messages*

I'd love a --header "svn:message: my message" too. I raised it before in
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SVN-4454 but the team was split back
in 2013 on yes vs no. I'm thinking I'd like it again, having reviewed all
the comments. Can I ask for that issue/request to be reopened, please ?

*An Aside*

My CMS thing from 11 years ago used SeaMonkey (or MsWord2004 (not sure of
the year) before Microsoft killed DAV support in Office) for a vanilla
'PUT' of a page. I would have needed to have contributed to *SeaMonkey's*
codebase to have an inline *commit message* added to the 'publish' dialog
box for the page editor. The code's in GitHub these days if anyone is
interested, as all of Codehaus' repos were copied there before shutdown of
that fondly remembered portal. Codehaus being the first OSS code portal to
provision Subversion (pre 1.0).
