That's pretty much how it works. But, it doesn't use file names.
Basically if you don't set a mime type svn assumes it is a text file.

Also, svn always stores text files with LF as the only line ending. From
the svn book:

"Note that Subversion will actually store the file in the repository
using normalized LF EOL markers regardless of the operating system. This
is basically transparent to the user, though."

For more info read these topics in the svn manual:
