[TSVN] Feature Request: Setting properties on folders

From: Peter Mounce <pete_at_x-rm.com>

I recently set up bugtraq properties on the project I'm working on. I
right-click on the top-level directory of my WC (which is trunk/src,
note, not trunk), and set, one by one, each of the bugtraq properties,
ticking the recursive option to apply the properties to subfolders.

My request is moot if I misunderstood the docs, which say that if I
cannot be sure project members will only ever check out the trunk then
I should apply properties recursively from the trunk on down. Since I
cannot guarantee that, that's what I'm doing.


I think it would be more friendly, in the case of setting properties
recursively, to be able to set all the properties desired at the top
level, and then having an "apply recursively" button to click, to
mirror the top-level props down the tree. This turns a sequential
operation into a batch operation, saving the user some interactions,
and probably increasing his net productivity since chances are high of
making coffee while the op proceeds ;-)

In my case, this would have saved 4 wait-for-recursion-to-finish

Perhaps it could be possible to select multiple properties from the
top textbox, and then mirror just the selected ones down the tree.

This probably isn't the best way of doing what I want, merely the
first thing that springs to mind - I'm sure someone can think of a
better solution.
