I found out svn:ignore is not a revision property, so that is why I could not find it. It is a versioned property, so I tried this :
Y:\util>svn pg svn:ignore https://svn.edb.com/repos/java/cards/cap/cap_client/trunk@54271
And then it is obvious that it contains non UTF-8 characters, "?\216" but how can I get svnsync to tolerate this, or find another workaround. As I understand Subversion there is no way to modify the svn:ignore property as it is in revision 54271?
