SVN Import of Binary files

Girish Mohite (21278) | asked Sep 19 '13, 12:55 p.m.
Using RTC 4.0.3

I have imported trunk from a SVN dump file.
However when i check out the properties of binary files in my repository i see them as follows.

Properties for (AjaxPro.dll) -

Character-Encoding - UTF-8
Executable - false
Line delimiter - None
Mime Type - text/plain
Read Access - public

Can you please advise why does a binary file gets imported as if it was a text ?

If there's no mime type property to use from the SVN dump then the default is to set it to text content. Nothing will be changed in the file and you can change it later after the import. If you think it should do some work to determine a better content type, feel free to open an RFE.
