Subject Keyword expansion in SVN
Date Wed, 25 Jul 2007 11:11:55 GMT
Dear XMLGraphics devs,

I've noticed that some files (notably some test cases) in XMLGraphics do
not have keyword expansion set, others have set it to different values,
sometimes "Author Date Id Revision", sometime just "Id". The only
keyword that is used in the actual sourcecode is "Id", Author, Date, and
Revision are never used.

Here is a little script I use in JEuclid before every commit, but
especially after adding new files [1]:

--- svnproperties.sh ---

find . -name \*.java -exec svn ps svn:keywords "Revision Date Id" '{}' \;
find . -name \*.java -exec svn ps svn:eol-style native '{}' \;


The script itself is checked in, with the property "svn:executable" set.

For xmlgraphics, I would suggest to use at least the first command,
probably setting just "Id" to be safe.

The second command sets the eol-style to native, which is was due to a
complaint from a windows user. Xmlgraphics has most files set to native,
but some are missing.

For FOP the situation is similar: Again, Source files have different
keyword expansions set, or none at all, where "Id" is the only one
actually used. Also, most files in fop are set to eol-style native, but
some are missing.

Some files in fop have the property "svn:eol" which doesn't do anything.
This should be removed.

My recommendation: Set keyword expansion to "Id" for all java files,
both in xmlgraphics and fop (preferrably by adding a script such the one
given). Also, set eol-style to native.
