For text files that are already under version control? Yes. This is
your only choice. Use a bunch of commandline tools (find | xargs svn
propset), or write a shell script to help.

"Propset" is a local mod, so it can only happen in a working copy,
followed by a commit. At the moment, there's no way to make the svn
commandline client modify file props (or contents) directly against the

Yes, it's a new feature in your ~/.subversion/config file, not yet
documented in the Book. Enable the "auto-props" feature and set
patterns accordingly. Any time you 'svn add' a text file, it will
automatically set properties for you. Here's the excerpt from a modern
~/.subversion/config file:

### Set enable-auto-props to 'yes' to enable automatic properties
### for 'svn add' and 'svn import', it defaults to 'no'.
### Automatic properties are defined in the section 'auto-props'.
enable-auto-props = yes

### Section for configuring automatic properties.
### The format of the entries is:
### file-name-pattern = propname[=value][;propname[=value]...]
### The file-name-pattern can contain * as wildcard. All entries
### which match will be applied to the file.
