yes:

There are several options you can try:

Use the tsvn:autoprops property. That way you can configure the auto
properties once for each repository/project and all TSVN clients will
use them:
http://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-dug-propertypage.html#tsvn-dug-propertypage-tsvn-props

Wait about two months until svn 1.8 is released, then upgrade all your
servers and clients to that version. SVN 1.8 will have "Repository
Dictated Configuration":
http://subversion.apache.org/docs/release-notes/1.8.html#repos-dictated-config
