svnadmin setrevprop — Set a property on a revision.


svnadmin setrevprop REPOS_PATH -r REVISION NAME FILE


Set the property NAME on revision REVISION to the contents of FILE. Use --use-pre-revprop-change-hook or --use-post-revprop-change-hook to trigger the revision property-related hooks (e.g., if you want an email notification sent from your post-revprop-change-hook).



The following sets the revision property repository-photo to the contents of the file sandwich.png:

$ svnadmin setrevprop /var/svn/repos -r 0 repository-photo sandwich.png

As you can see, svnadmin setrevprop has no output upon success.
