Re: globally setting auto-props

As Andy Levy stated, there is no global setting for auto-props.
However, if you provide a standard Subversion config file in a place
where developers can grab it (like the company Wiki), and you use
trigger scripts to enforce the property settings, your developers will
quickly learn to set auto-props themselves. It would be nice to have a
global setting, but I can tell you from experience that a pre-commit
trigger works pretty well.

I don't know if the standard Python pre-commit access control hook can
verify that properties are set or not. You should check that one first
since it's the standard Subversion pre-commit trigger. However, if
that one doesn't check properties,, I have my own Perl version that
does verify that particular properties are set and that they have the
correct value. It can be found at
