Hello again,

I looked, but could not find an entry about "svn propappend" or "svn
propset --append" in the issue tracker. So I don't think there is
currently working someone on this.
I could only find the following thread in the mailing list archive:

http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2005-02/0107.shtml

It merely ended with the concession to add a script to the "contrib"
folder, which covers the proposed functionality. But seems nothing in
that direction happened until now.
My personal opinion is, it would be better to integrate the command
(or a new option for the propset command) directly in the svn command
line client instead of some python script. The script solution may be
convenient for some power users working in Unix environments. But the
"ordinary user" just looks into the "svn help" output to find a
functionality to configure the files to ignore, and expects such a
functionality directly in the svn executable.
By the way - TortoiseSVN already includes the "ignore files/folders"
function. You can launch it using the explorer context menu, or you
can launch it in the "commit" dialog. Very convenient! :-)
But what is missing is the possibility to achieve the same from the
command line.

Regards,

    Martin
