Re: [TSVN] Possible bug with the property svn:global-ignores

Hi Stefan,

Thanks for your feedback.
I understand your point of view, and I know that there is a possibility with the
configuration file. Yet, the solution with the versionned properties is far more
attractive to me: no need to deploy a configuration on all the computers,
automatic updates if there are any, possibility to have repo-specific ignore
lists, etc. Really, I find them more handy in the daily use (I have tested each
of the two solutions for more than one year).
That's why I prefer to insist on my proposition: is it a non-sense to have the
option to auto-inherit properties while Adding files and folders, even for a
depth > 1?
