Re: How to define a keyword similar to "id" but without author?

Sorry to hijack this thread - I hope I don't do any damage to the
original question, but I'd like to add a comment along the same lines:
Subversion has been very well designed - it makes good use of concept
and code reuse. It would be nice if a more generic mechanism were
provided to manage keyword replacement. Such a mechanism might make use
of properties to define replacement templates. Then repositories could
define their own keywords for replacement with common information.
On my team, we have used CVS in the past to manage projects where the
developers stored their change log entries for modified files at the top
of the files themselves. Because of the way SVN manages revisions as
directory changes, not file changes, I see that this would be difficult
to implement, but it would be nice to have the ability to define your
own keyword replacement semantics.

I would like to define a new keyword that should be nearly the same
"id" but is shouldn't contain the author.

I also want to use "id" as keyword thus this is not an option to

Additionally I would like to add that property to all *.jsp files.

How can I do these things?
