Subversion != ViewCVS. This message belongs on the viewcvs@lyra.org

But I'll spare you the trouble -- ViewCVS is a repository browser, and
performs no transformations on the data stored in that repository.
Since Subversion stores keywords unexpanded in the repos (and expands
them client-side), this is the behavior you'll see using the ViewCVS
'svn' module. That said, if you can deal with slower and unfinished
behavior, you can setup your ViewCVS configuration to point to not the
path of your repository, but it's URL (even a file:/// URL will do).
That will cause ViewCVS to start using the not-highly-publicized
'svn_ra' module, which is a client-side wrapper -- that *should* show
your files with the $Rev$ and such expanded.
