For question 1.2.10, I believe you also want:

   enable-auto-props = yes

so that "svn add" works properly.

Question 1.4.1 should cover the use of "svn diff" instead of "cvs diff" to 
make the patch.

On that note, we need to update the patch submission guidelines to point to 
SVN instead of CVS (those guidelines also still say context diffs are 
preferred to unified diffs, which I believe is no longer true).
