your working copy, and the second edits unversioned
remote properties on a repository revision
TARGET determines only which
repository to access).
svn propedit makes it easy to modify properties that have multiple values:
$ svn propedit svn:keywords foo.c # svn will open in your favorite text editor a temporary file # containing the current contents of the svn:keywords property. You # can add multiple values to a property easily here by entering one # value per line. When you save the temporary file and exit, # Subversion will re-read the temporary file and use its updated # contents as the new value of the property. Set new value for property 'svn:keywords' on 'foo.c' $
