Hi Philip,

It is a conflict. Values didn’t change after applying the patch.

root@contrail-ubm-dipuh:/tmp/tests# svn patch /tmp/patch
>         rejected hunk ## -0,0 +1,1 ## (svn:executable)
Summary of conflicts:
  Property conflicts: 1
root@contrail-ubm-dipuh:/tmp/tests# svn diff

    The normalization of svn:executable values is implemented in the client.
    If some client chooses not to implement that normalization the backend
    will store any value given.
    Should the svn client silently merge '' and '*' for svn:executable
    values or should it be a conflict?  I favour the conflict but I can see
    arguments for a silent merge.
