Keyword expansion is done by the client upon checkout/update, not when
committing.

You can set properties on files automatically when they're added via
auto-props, but that doesn't help with files already in the
repository. You can run svn_apply_autoprops.py to apply the auto-props
you have in your config file to a working copy, however, to get caught
up. Or, you can just find all the files that need a particular set of
properties, then right-click and choose TSVN->Properties and set the
properties on all those files at once.
