The obvious simplest approach is to put the properties file into a different
directory, so that it's not in the subtree you're checking in.

A common approach in many systems is to deliver foo.properties.orig, and
then generate foo.properties as part of the installation or configuration
process. This is what Apache does, and I'm pretty sure Perl does something
similar. A variation on this is to have a different directory for the
product to find the properties. If done for all deliverable files, this has
the advantage of making your tests more reliable (since you avoid problems
from files in your developer directory that won't ship with your kit).
Another variation is when the product uses a search list to find the file,
and you trick it that way.

Am I missing something here? It's going to tell you about other peoples
changes regardless of whether you're modifying the original or a copy.
Either way, you need to make an evaluation as to whether any of your changes
need to go in.
