Re: Properties are not reset after svn delete + svn add?

This is as I understand it:

After your svn delete commando, the file is marked for deletion.
The svn proplist commando gets the properties for the file under version
control. (Remember, it is only marked for deletion but still in the
repository as far as subversion is concerned)
The svn add commando adds another file "script.sh" without the +x
The svn commit now performs multiple steps:

Deleting script.sh, thus also deleting properties on script.sh
Adding script.sh, without properties.

After this, when you execute an svn log on script.sh, it only shows the
log from the commit, so it is totally unrelated to the first script.sh.

Seems logical to me.
