Re: Auto-prop not working?

I'm reimporting the files, since there was a different major mistake the
the files being imported that I had to correct.

Another posting said to separate the keywords with comma-space. Does
either work? I've looked in the book and didn't see anything that shows
multiple entries per line.

There is a lot to learn about Subversion.

BTW, we are on Solaris 8, so I'll grab your script for future reference.

If you run "svn proplist -v" on any file you've imported, you'll find
that the svn:keywords property contains only "URL". Each of the lines
above is taken separately, and the last one overrides the others. To
get what you want, do something like this instead:

* = svn:keywords=Id LastChangedDate Date LastChangedRevision

... etc, with everything on a single line separated by spaces. No
quotes are necessary.

Of course, now that everything is already imported into the repository,
those properties will have to be set manually... auto-props only applies
to files as they are newly added. If you're on Linux, I have written a
Perl script that should be able to do that (I just haven't tested in on
Windows). Hope this helps.
