RE: Config auto-props and svn:keywords on w2k server

Actually that wasn't the source of my confusion, the confusion has
arisen in that I thought that a server side auto-props config would
apply to adds from a remote workstation. I see this topic has been
beaten to death by various Zope developers, For what it's worth I'm on
their side. "Honestly: how often do you add new source files to a
repository?" - well when you start out on a brand new project (with a
brand new source code control system...), you add a hell of a lot (and
not all at once) ...

Now what I need to do is to find out how to set auto-props for
TortoiseSVN ...

Here's the source of your confusion: the auto-props feature *does not*
make properties automatically appear on files when you update and
commit. It *only* affects the behavior of the 'svn add' and 'svn
import' commands. That's it. So if you have a bunch of files already
under version control, enabling auto-props does nothing (or rather, it
only affects the act of *adding* new files to version control). For
files already under version control, you'll have to 'svn propset' each
file accordingly, either manually or using a script of some sort.
