Subversion does not support $Log$. See this FAQ:


Auto-props are a client-side setting so you would want to be sure to get
the configuration in place on all developer's systems. They are your best
way to get these keywords added correctly.

To enforce the keywords, you would have to implement a pre-commit hook
that examined Added files to be sure they have the property set. If they
do not, you could reject the commit and give a message back to the user.
You cannot add the keywords as part of the hook.
