Hi Stefan,

what I mean is that today, the rev prop Editor is quite cumbersome to use.
In Order to create a new property:
RMB->Properties->new->prop-name (top right)->prop content middle of the dialogue.->OK

Even loading props from file is not realy simple, since for each repository node there might be different values to set.

Try to add many different attributes... it is a tidous task. Personaly I use the cli for this, rather tsvn.

Now if tsvn would have a configurable layout of the main properties for a specific tree and/or repository, users would have to enter only the property values in the right fields, rather than specifying propname+value, one by one.

Having, simple configurable layouts and the ability to recurse to the generic editor would be a simple thing.

A more advanced prop editor could even check the syntax of the properties on property entry. Prop-X must comply to regexp "IR-NNN". I aknowledge that in order to be consistent, this must be checked server side. Still checking at user entry, this would limit commits of typos.

This is only intended as a starting point of a dicussion. I do not have a spec ready. I would rather ask what people need. I have my ideas though. Then I would try to build some sort of functional spec. Btw., where is a good place to submit such a spec? Issue tracker?
