I was really thinking about big projects where I am just one small team
member (OK this is just hypothetical - I don't belong to any, but if I
did ...). And for some projects TSVN might be only one of many clients.
A case in point is subversion where there is a policy on log message
length. I am guessing that many of those devs use Linux clients, so
having to set a project property to get TSVN to conform to the rules
might be seen as an imposition.

Personally I don't care. Most of the time I work alone, so I can do what
I like in my own repository, and the TSVN repo is set up for TSVN
clients :-)

I can see what you are saying, but exactly the same argument applies to
things like ignore lists. From the recent thread there are _5_ different
places you can set a global ignore list, as well as the project ignore

IMHO the project settings always take precedence. If the project cares
enough to set a policy, then the clients must adhere to it. If the
project has no policy then you allow the clients to set their own
default. There has to be a default, all you are doing is allowing the
client to choose that default instead of hard coding it.

But that is my opinion, and if no-one else has any strong feelings then
there is no reason to change (again).
