keywords repository wide rather than client

I have spent the morning bashing my head off a wall trying to remember what
I did months ago to get keywords property added automatically to all word
documents in my repository. Just as I was about to email for assistance I
discovered something interesting..


I followed the instructions and edited the config file (tsvn settings>edit)
on the machine on which the repository is stored to read the following:


Enable-auto-props = yes

*.* = svn:keywords=Id HeadURL (have also tried .xls but that didn't help!)


I submitted a couple files using the same template which I had previously
manually changed. Yet none of them contained the keyword properties and
therefore the substitution didn't happen.


Then, as I was looking to copy and paste my file into my email I discovered
that if I search for the config file from my client (Repo is on a PC my
laptop is a client) the config file is different! Within the client config
file I discovered the changes I had made months ago to allow keywords to
work on word docs. A quick addition for xls, and they work now as well!


So my question/problem is: Why do I have to make these settings from the
client side? It would be VERY beneficial for me to make them from a single
point ie: the repository rather than trying to get a load of currently
sceptical users to do it themselves!
