[TSVN] [request] Make added directories inherit properties from parent...?

From: Peter Mounce <petermounce_at_iml.co.uk>

I have a repository of roughly the following structure:


Properties are set on the trunk, and when I set them, I ticked the checkbox
to make them recursive. In my case, this was svn:ignore to ignore things
Visual Studio generates, like the bin and obj directories.

Today, I added trunk/projectB/module3/ - in the add dialogue box, all of the
things that I would like ignored (that are ignored by the use of
svn:ignore), were ticked by default in the box.

So, I add just the items I want, commit, and then re-set, recursively, the
properties from the trunk.

It would be nice if the add dialogue either applied the parent directory's
properties to the list of things being added, or asked me whether it should,
when it generates the list of things to add. I cannot think of a case where
I would not want a new directory to pick up the properties that its parent
has, when those properties were set recursively (but I doubt SVN records the
fact that the properties were changed recursively as opposed to just as a
one-off, right?).
