TortoiseSVN and Keywords

Hello -

I'm using the lateset build of Subversion and TortoiseSVN as my client.

I have a repository setup remotely that I can access via an SVN:// URL.

I would like to begin using keywords within my project files in order to
track the $Rev$, $Date$, $HeadURL$, and $Author$ data.

I'm new at SVN and Tortoise and cannot seem to figure out how to make the
keywords global for all files -- especially files without extensions. We
have a bunch of mainframe jobs that I'm trying to get our operations group
to begin source controlling and they do not have extensions when they come
off mainframe.

I realize Tortoise has a "Properties" option under the context menu. But
these settings seem to only be used on a per-file or per-file-type basis?

I have stumbled across the "config" file under the %USERDATA%\Subversion
folder and enabled auto properties and setup a wildcard of *.* using the
existing examples. This doesn't appear to be working either -- unless I
have to reboot or something for changes to take affect.

Lastly, when I get this working--whichever way is the right way for this--I
need to copy my config to other operators so the keywords will be saved when
they make changes to their mainframe jobs.

Any help or direction would be appreciated.
