Re: question on auto-props

Andy,

thanks for your reply. Doesn't this then mean that I have to specify
each of the 500 file types we use manually and every time a new type is
added to the repo I will have to change all client configs?

What if there are file types that could be binary but aren't always?

Thanks
Jan
