Is it possible to set
svn:externals property using
git svn propset?
I have successfully used
git svn propset to set the
svn:eol property. However, for
svn:externals I am unsure if/how it can be done because
svn:externals is a multi-line property, and I'm not sure if/how multiple lines of the property value may be expressed on the command line.
svn:externals, it would be ideal if the
git svn propset command had an
--edit option, which would allow the property to be edited in the text editor (similar to editing commit text or git config).
I'm using git version 2.11.1 on Windows.Answer1:
If you are using Git Bash, just enclose the argument in question in quotes like
git svn propset svn:externals "foo bar" baz/bam
