Unfortunately, not at this time. Repository-defined autoprops are listed
as a medium-term goal on the Subversion roadmap
(http://subversion.tigris.org/roadmap.html), but they do not yet exist.

If your user base is small enough you could distribute a common SVN
client configuration file that contains the autoprops you want. I have
done this for past small groups, going so far as to wrap it up in an
installer for the Windows clients. If your user base is large then I am
afraid there is no good answer.

This would not be advisable as there are subtle but important reasons to
not modify a transaction in a pre-commit hook. Check out the link below
and scroll down to the pink warning box.
