Re: Can I have a svn:keywords value set default to the whole project?

This can also be set on the server globally, at least on UNIX.&nbsp; I am not sure on Windows, but it is probably possible there too.&nbsp; Of course then it is set for all repositories/projects.&nbsp; You may set it by file type though, via extensions etc.&nbsp; Take a look in the manual, I can't remember the specifics.

&gt;&gt; I am surprised that I have to manually set svn:keywords on every new
&gt;&gt; file in my project? Is there a better method?
&gt;&gt; Thanks.

&gt; In short, no.
&gt; You can edit the (per user) Subversion configuration and turn on
&gt; auto-props. That will allow you have any added files automatically
&gt; get whatever default properties you want.
&gt; This is not an ideal solution because there's no way to associate this
&gt; with a repository: it's a per-user setting - all users need to make
&gt; sure their config (UNIX: ~/.subversion/config, Win:
&gt; %APPDATA%\Subversion\config) file is edited correctly.
&gt; On a per repository basis, you could add a pre-commit hook script that
&gt; checks added files for required properties and refuses the commit if
&gt; they are not present. This can help to keep things consistent, but I
&gt; also think having the ability to set these by repository would be
&gt; cleaner.
