If you're asking about the auto-props settings to automatically set
the svn:mime-type of a file based on its extension, then it's handled
at the client side.

Subversion does not do anything special to handle this. If some
developers do not have their config set up properly, then their files
will be added to the repository with the wrong properties. Simple as
that.

The recommendation is that you should create a pre-commit hook which
looks at the incoming transaction, and if there are any files that do
not have the "correct" properties, for whatever definition of
"correct" you want to define, then you can reject the commit,
informing the committer what they have to do to make it succeed.

This has been discussed on the list many times before.
