If you want to know what that rationale was, have a read of this:


The short version is that the API makes available the "local" and "inherited" version of *every* property separately, and it's up to the client to decide whether to use one or the other or both, and how to merge values if required. And that decision can be different for each individual property.

As it happens, the rule for svn:ignore is to use only the local value, and the rule for svn:global-ignores is to merge both. But the TSVN property editor was applying more basic rules generically rather than having separate rules for each properly.
