See the thread I started about three weeks ago on this list titled:

"svn config file and mime types"

http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2008-10/0707.shtml

IMO, this is a major short falling of svn. It is also a long standing
feature request:

http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=1974

Having each client specify this stuff is really hard to enforce and very
error prone. It really should be part of the repository and stored in
the .svn directories for a project. I realize there are some technical
hurdles to the implementation, but the current situation is a real pain...
