Additionally, auto-props only cause the property to be set on files or
directories as they are added to the repository. If you want svn:keywords to
be set on files that already exist in the repository, you'll have to set it
yourself for each one. (And unfortunately, as I just found out today, "svn
propset" does not take a URL, so you'll have to check the files out and use
"svn propset" in a working copy.)
