You'll probably want to set up your clients with a config file which
turns on auto-props and specifies a set of keywords to automatically
apply to .asp files, and whatever other kind of automatic properties
you want to set.

To enforce this on the server site, you'll write a pre-commit hook
which checks all files in the incoming transaction for conformance
with your policy. Transactions that don't comply can then be
rejected, with an error message advising people where to download a
properly-configured config file.

$Log$ is deliberately not available in Subversion.
