Re: auto-props syntax in file vs. property

Hi Daniel,

thanks for the reply.
You're right that it seems to work when I do "svn add" and with that config file, but when I do the same with svn_apply_autoprops.py, it acts badly. I simply forgot to check the regular add :)
So I get the problem when I do:
  ./svn_apply_autoprops.py --config myconfig /path/to/workspace

Then it will set charset and mime-type as two separate properties.
(and yes, it sets 3 properties overall, I just meant that the mime-type got split into two)

I guess there's something in the parser in svn_apply_autoprops that is misbehaving rather than svn itself. A quick look in that file shows this line:
    for prop in props.split(';'):
Which I suspect is the root cause of the issue, although I haven't verified it yet. I guess I need to figure out some python basics and see if I can ugly-hack that to work for double semicolons.

 I can't reproduce this.  With that line in
 ~/.subversion/config I get:
 % svn add foo.java
 A        foo.java
 % svn pl
 -v foo.java
 Properties on
 (The value
 'native' was inherited from svn:auto-props in the
 copy I was testing in.)
 Also, does it really set *two*
 properties on the file?  Not three? 
 What client and version do you use?
