And you're going to continue to see people attempt it until server-side
default properties are available.

Yes, I've read the relevant entry in the issue tracker, I understand
that there are non-trivial issues to be solved, and no, I don't have the
time to contribute it. I'm not try to criticize here, just explain why
this pops up on a regular basis: trying to enforce a consistent set of
client configurations across a large and/or diverse set of developers
is difficult, especially if those configurations change over time, or
are different for different projects/repositories.

It might be worth adding a big warning and
explanation to the "post-commit" hook entry in


"Outlook not so good." That magic 8-ball knows everything! I'll ask
about Exchange Server next.
