Re: File attributes

Gidday Gustavo,

I've been a SVN-User reader for a while and so feel obliged to make a
contribution.

SVN knows somethng as being "executable" as it sets the SVN property
svn:executable:

> svn proplist ExecutableFile
svn:executable
...

The Subversion people could add the automatic use of a hidden property,
or perhaps a Windows client such as SVNTortoise could:
if (svn propget svn:hidden HiddenFile == "*") {
        WindowsSetToHidden(HiddenFile);
}

AND

if (WindowsIsTheFileHidden(HiddenFile)) {
        svn propset svn:hidden HiddenFile;
}

Arbitrary properties can be set though I'd say the ones that start with
'svn:' should be used only by SVN.

Cheers,

Brooke

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.

Regards
Gustavo Guerra
