There is a difference between svn file properties and svn revision
properties. The file properties are attached to the file and are
versioned (i.e. changes to them get committed when you commit). The
revision properties are attached to the revision, filled automatically
by subversion and are not versioned (i.e. if the admin allows it they
can be changed, but then their previous value is lost).
