Bug on Remove Tortoise properties of files

Sorry for my bad English.


I tried more than one, restarted the PC, searched for it, but I did not
found anything about this, so I think this is a Bug.


Well, let me describe first my problem, since I think the lasts 3 updates of
TortoiseSVN, always when I do an update or a commit, the files the tortoise
update or commit, it sets the file read-only. Well, trying to resolve this I
found the bug.

I’ve read the Tortoise help and discovery about the properties of the files
that I never used, one of them is called svn:needs-look, I tried to set
false to all files in the project, I did this with a right-click on the main
project folder (the root of my working copy) and went in the tab
“Subversion”, then selected the property, write false in the text field,
selected “recursive” and pressed “Set”.

Then it sets all my files with that property, but instead of false, the
content of the property for each file was “*” (an asterisk).

So I modified some files and when I tried to do a commit, it wanted to
commit all my files, but that problem was of my own, and I didn’t wanted to
share the property I modified with my coworkers. So when I tried to took off
that property of the files I found the bug:


If you try to select the property, select “recursive” and select remove,
nothing happens.


Because this is a property of each file and not of a folder, I’ll have to
change file by file. It means work until my death…

(of course I’ll “give a way” and won’t do that)


So if you can help with my problem, I’ll thank you.
