Automatic Property Setting

I've been reading up on SVN in preparation to move to it from VSS.

Currently, in VSS we use the $Header$ and $Log$ keyword expansions in our
ASP files to identify the version of the file a lot to get an overview of
recent changes, and find out which version of the file is deployed to an
instance of the application.

I want to ensure that every ASP file (and a few other types) committed to
the repository has these keywords expanded. What is the best way to ensure
this? Automatic Property Setting appears to be a client side setting, if
another developer adds a file, is there a way to enforce the right property
setting for the ASP files?

Also SVN does not appear to have an equivalent of the $Log$ keyword, which
outputs the commit history as it's built up, e.g:

'$Log: /path/to/my.asp$
'48 5/01/04 10:50 mjervis
'Commit message 48
'47 27/10/03 14:00 another
'commit message 47
'46 22/10/03 14:03 adeveloper
'commit message 46

Is there something missing from the docs? Is there another way I can handle
this? We store important information in these messages that it would be very
handy to see in the file.


Best regards
