Re: svn:keywords

Ryan, your message left me wondering whether I really understand the
use of svn:keywords or, perhaps, the autoprops setting. I don't
necessarily want to force developers to include any or all keywords,
but I want Subversion to always updated files if the keywords are
present. I thought that, in order to do the latter, I had to
explicitly tell svn to recognize certain keywords. Is my
understanding correct or am I horribly misguided?
