Locale Issue in Subversion checkout with svn:keywords

I would like to ask about the locale handling in Subversion. I apologize if
this has been discussed here before, but I did not find any relevant
references that address the same issue.

Basically, we are having issues with our software deployment procedures
because the checkout also fills the props svn:keywords of all files
according to local locale (defined at LC_MESSAGES, I believe). We have a
large multi-language environment, and we have to deal with logs in languages
such as Japanese, and worse, remote operations using SSH sessions may
transport the local locate of the workstations, messing up everything.

So, I was wondering if there is any way to set the locale of the SVN client
in a server, to ensure it will always checkout using a certain locale (of
course, English). Doing so in Japanese or Chinese, for instance, messes up
with the compilation of files, if you have enforced locale tags en every
file. One good example if the $Date $ keyword, which gives the date in
Unicode chars for Japanese.

If it is not available, I would like to suggest maybe adding this to the
subversion/config file.

Thanks in advance,

*Braga, Bruno*
