Hi George Hazan,

Your doubts are correct.

When a file is checked out/updated, the client fetches the file from the
repository (can be server, can be a local file:// url).

*If* that file has the "svn:keywords" property set *and* contains matching
keywords *then* _the client_ expands the keywords using the local encoding
and time format settings.

You now work with a file that contains the expanded keywords.

When that file is committed to the repository, _the client_ contracts the
keywords _before_ the content is sent back to the repository.

The content (concrete value) of the keywords is never stored in the
repository, only the keywords themselves, as placeholders, are stored there.
