Re: Auto-prop not working?

OK, what is one supposed to do? We can't trust the users to remember to
set properties on new files they commit, hence the reason for the
auto-prop setting. I assumed incorrectly that Subversion would not apply
keywords to files it considers to be binary.

Yes. It's a bit reckless, and might lead to binary file corruption.
It's equivalent to forgetting to set '-kb' on binary files in CVS.
