Re: File attributes

From: Gustavo Guerra <gmcg_at_acm.org>

Suppose I have a file somefile.txt with the hidden attribute in
c:\somefolder
I do a "svn import file://somerepository/somedir"
Then i go to C:\somefolder2 and do "svn co file://somerepository/somedir". I
got somefile.txt back without the hidden attribute. I would like the file to
comeback with the hidden attribute.
If i manually hide the file again with "attrib +h somefile" when I do
updates, the file continues hidden, that's ok. But if i delete the file, and
update the dir, the file cames back without the hidden attribute again. Also
If I remove the hidden attribute and commit, I would like when someone
checks out in other places, the hidden attribute would go away on update
also.

I currently need this onlu for the hidden attribute, but it also would be
nice to also have for the read-only attribute. I know unix doesn't have the
hidden attribute, but windows doesn't have the executable attribute and you
save it, ignoring it when checking out or updating in windows. I would like
the hidden state to be versioned, and when checked out in unix just ignored.

Gustavo Guerra
