If you did want to add it to everyone in the repos.. then 'svn-apply-autoprops.py' is your friend.. atleast that is what i think it is called. It will require the same file as the client side solution (well mainly).

Check out the repos, run svn-apply-autoprops.py and commit.

From experience... if your repos is very massive.. break this process down abit...

Cheers
