RE: [TSVN] Svn:ignore -- recursive -- bug report

Hi Stefan,

I respectfully maintain that it is a bug. At least when done through a GUI,
the overwrite is unexpected. On the command line, it would probably seem
natural.

Please consider introducing a recursive-append option in which tsvn just
iterated through the tree itself and appended non recursive options to each
child folder.

Thank you for your quick reply.

Darrick

That's the behaviour of the Subversion library. The properties are never
merged/appended but always set new!
