To work around this issue, run the 'svn propset' command on the machine
that hosts the repository using 'file:///' URLs, rather than on your
client using 'http://' URLs.

Subject: Dump/load prevents changing of pre-dump revprops

I moved my repository from a Windows to a Linux server (full dump and
load). I am now unable to set revprops (such as svn:author) of revisions
that were
created BEFORE the dump/load.

Conversely, setting revprops on newer revisions works just fine.

The error message returned by 'svn propset' is:
   svn: DAV request failed; it's possible that the repository's
   pre-revprop-change hook either failed or is non-existent
   svn: At least one property change failed; repository is unchanged

I added some 'echo >> tmpfile' statements to my pre-revprop-change
script, and I saw that in cases where the change fails, the script
actually runs TWICE, whereas if it succeeds, it only runs ONCE.

I am using Subversion 1.1.4 (r13838) on Debian, with Apache as the

Thanks in advance,

P.S. Sorry for reposting, but the old message was sent while I was
still missing some information. I felt like this one is much clearer.
