See the thread I started about three weeks ago on this list titled:

"svn config file and mime types"


IMO, this is a major short falling of svn. It is also a long standing
feature request:


Having each client specify this stuff is really hard to enforce and very
error prone. It really should be part of the repository and stored in
the .svn directories for a project. I realize there are some technical
hurdles to the implementation, but the current situation is a real pain...
