It really sounds like you're missing a key piece of the workflow of
Subversion here. Please read the manual.

To do an Add, it takes two steps. First you Add the file, which
informs the WC that the file is to go into the repository an if
configured for auto-props sets those properties. Then you need to
commit the change before it will appear in the repository.

Yes, because that's the correct workflow with Subversion.
