AFAIU that, I set the properties in the working copy and commit to
get them in the repository.

I tried that with a single file in my test repository.

I tried

        [panic:FSA60 Mathe/2007-05-16Klausur/klausur] kuddel% svn propset
test 'Test' 2007-05-16klausur3.tex

and got the answer

        Eigenschaft ?\194?\187test?\194?\171 f?\195?\188r ?\194?
\1872007-05-16klausur3.tex?\194?\171 gesetzt

(By the way, is there a good chance to make subversion talk English,
it seems it has its problem with German?)

Trying to read the properties via

        [...]svn proplist 2007-05-16klausur3.tex

is answered with

        Eigenschaften zu ?\194?\1872007-05-16klausur3.tex?\194?\171:


which seems to state the property name, but not the property value.


Further, which mime type do I have toset for PDF files?

Could the following lead to the correct syntax?

        svn propset -R svn:mime-type '<correct mime type for PDF files>' *.pdf
