Yes, those autoprops only work on files since those are passed to the
svn library, and that as you've noticed doesn't add automatically to

But why do you want to set a property "svn:bugtraq:url"?

First, you must never, ever (repeat: never, ever, not in your whole
lifetime) use the 'svn:' namespace for your own properties. That
namespace is reserved.

Second, if you want to set the bugtraq:url property however: that
property is automatically added to new folders by TSVN. So you don't
have to set any auto props for this: it's already done automatically
without you needing to configure it.
