would be nice to have some way of simulating auto-props

Status: closed (fixed)

Priority: major Milestone: 0.11.0
Component: vss2svn.pl Version: 0.11.0

I admit I haven't tried this with the legacy script in any form, but it should work according to the subversion docs.

The builtin auto-props ability of subversion allows properties to automatically be set during the import, so people can set the svn:mime-type and svn:eol-style (etc.) as they transfer the VSS database to subversion, and these properties will be set there when the migration is done, because this is supposed to activate when files get added to the repository.

It would be nice to be able to simulate this behavior with the new script.

We should also add this feature to the documentation (especially documenting how to migrate), as people will probably want this, especially in multiplatform environments.

Change History

  • status changed from new to assigned.
  • milestone changed from 0.10-alpha-2 to 0.10-beta-1.

I'm changing the milestone for this to 0.11... I agree this functionality would be nice to have but the goal for 0.10 is to get a replica of the VSS database as it already exists and I don't want to hold up 0.10 for this.

Note that the script will currently set the "application/octet-stream" mime-type on any file marked "IsBinary" in VSS, which is the svn client's default functionality.
