Lucian: Which version of git are you using?

As of git v2.3.0 and thanks to Alfred, the "git svn propset"
command exists for setting new props via git; however it
only got documented recently in v2.9.1.

It also seems to support setting props via "svn-properties"
in the .gitattributes file based on reading the code;
but I'm not familiar with this area, so I defer to Alfred.

Alfred: "svn-properties" isn't documented anywhere, yet;
is this something that should/could be documented?


cf. commit 83c9433e679635f8fbf8961081ea3581c93ca778
    ("git-svn: support for git-svn propset")

    commit 19a7f24b6f8aa89ea5899c928c2fa350f4b1521e
    ("git-svn: document the 'git svn propset' command")

Anyways I've never used SVN props much myself, so don't much
have experience in this area; nor do I have much experience
with git-side gitattributes.
