RE: Revprop of later revision folder

Ah. Missed that sentence from the manual:

"Revision and transaction properties are useful for associating
information with a tree that is not strictly related to the files and
directories in that tree-the kind of information that isn't managed by
client working copies."

Guess this is describing revprops and hinting that it only pays
to the revision or transaction as a whole.

Yes, it makes perfect sense.

Specifying --revprop on the "svn propget" line means that you're talking
unversioned properties: properties of the revision as a whole, rather
a particular file or folder.

You could specify any file or folder in the repository and get the same
results for any given revision number.
