Thanks for your quick response. How would I go about doing that? The commit hooks are only passed
the repo path and revision id as arguments. Would I have to check which files have been added with
that revision id, then add svn:keywords properties and commit? E.g. I'd parse the output of "svn
log" or some similar command etc?
