SVN Client Configuration File

This file describes SVN client behavior. Most interesting part of this file is [auto-props] section, which lists what properties will be automatically assigned to configured file types when files are initially added into the repository.

Files which were added into the repository without correctly set properties usually will end up with wrong line endings, or unexpanded keywords (such as $Id$), or won't be executable when they should be (for .sh scripts). To fix such files, use svn from command line:

# for non executable files
svn propdel svn:executable ''filename''
# for text files
svn propset svn:eol-style native ''filename''
svn propset svn:keywords Id ''filename''

To avoid such issues in the future, it is recommended for all Cocoon committers to have following config. Usually this config file is found in ~/.subversion/config, at least on *NIX and Cygwin platforms. In case of TortoiseSVN, go into the TortoiseSVN menu, Settings, General, Subversion Configuration File, Edit button.
