RE: Re: svn:externals editing size and EOL style

I just ran into the same issue that the property editing dialog is limited to 30'000 characters.

I have a similar need to have up to approx. 500 external files in a folder, which is/would be, as you already stated, a very very clear sign, that SVN should be reorganized.

But the tool we are using puts all it resources underneath the same folder. And I do not have control over the tool or its resource organisation.

On the other hand I feel, since the command line svn propedit, which just opens the default editor, has no such limitation, the client should not be the limiting instance.

You statement about updating would take ages and putting stress on the server I can not confirm from the tests I did with the command line svn propedit and TortoiseSVN update.

I suggest to make it a Tortoise configuration parameter propValueEditLength or so in the "Settings" with a default to 30'000. So everyone is free to make her/his choice.

What choices do I/we have otherwise:

- use the command line client instead for this and Tortoise for the rest.
- find another GUI client not limiting prop value size
- download TortoiseSVN sources, find the limiting setting and try to compile myself making it a 'parallel' Project for such a minor feature?
