• Metadata Properties

    A new feature of Subversion is that you can attach arbitrary metadata (or “properties”) to files and directories. Properties are arbitrary name/value pairs associated with files and directories in your working copy.

    To set or get a property name, use the svn propset and svn propget subcommands. To list all properties on an object, use svn proplist.

    For more information, see the section called “Properties”.
