Re: Changing versioned properties in older revisions,

I have had this same problem and found no good solution. One thing that I attempted, but didn't work was to configure Apache to return a redirect from the old location to the new location. Unfortunately, the Subversion client errors out rather than follow the redirect.

Does anybody know why it does not follow the redirect?
