Auto-props only take effect when a file is initially added to your
repository. It does not affect files already in your repository. You
need to set the svn:keywords property on those files.

BTW, be very careful with what you've done there. You've told your
client to apply those keywords to *all* files. If you have binary
files (MS Word, images, executables, etc.) you may unwittingly corrupt
them by enabling keywords on them.
