Just yesterday, I posted a Perl script to the dev list that recursively sets
properties on files/dirs in your working copy based on the auto-props section
of a configuration file. This might be useful for you if you have imported
files without auto-props turned on, but now want to set properties as if
auto-props had been enabled. This is a very common occurrence where I work,
since we've just switched totally over to Subversion and not everyone is
completely up to speed with their local configuration files.

I hope that the script may be accepted into the contrib section of the
Subversion project repository, but in the meantime, you can find it archived
in this message:


Right now it only runs on Linux (as far as I know), and since I just whipped
it up yesterday, there are no guarantees that it is completely bug-free, but
hopefully this will help you in your situation. (Hmm, I just double checked
your previous message and it looks like you're running on Windows. I will
make an effort to get it working on Windows in the next day or two.)
