RE: MSWord file in svn - change properties on commit

This posting:

http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2005-07/0813.shtml

suggests that fixed-width keyword expansion is already in Subversion 1.2.
It's just not documented in the book yet. The issue-tracker has more
detail:

http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2095

It bears mentioning that fixed-width keyword expansion may not be a panacea
for your problem. It only works as long as contiguous strings of
user-visible text remain contiguous strings in the saved file. With
proprietary formats, you're not guaranteed that this is the case (or if you
are lucky enough that it is, it can change on you). I had this problem with
old versions of Power Builder and Merant PVCS. Expanding a keyword,
fixed-width or not, would corrupt the file every time.

The latest versions of MSWord are capable of saving a document in a
(proprietary) XML file format. I'm using it for all my MSWord documents
that I've put in SVN. Because this is a plain text file format you can
easily add things yourself. I've added the SVN keywords to the
<o:Author> and <o:Revision> document properties, but you can also easily
add custom document properties.

As an added bonus it is a lot easier to diff these XML documents than
their binary (.DOC) counterparts.

Greetz,

Leon
