Re: how is svn:author set?

oooooh, I see. Makes total sense. So, svn:author is always set on commit
and you retrieve this by using --revprop and specifying a revision:

$ svn proplist -v --revprop -r 31 test.txt
Unversioned properties on revision 31:
  svn:log : testing auto-prop setting a list of keywords
  svn:author : sckerr
  svn:date : 2008-07-02T23:43:38.444948Z

Wonderful! Thank you Ryan. This is exactly what I needed and I also
understand what's going on here.
