The Subversion client is responsible for normalizing keywords and eol styles before sending the changes to the repository to be committed. If you used a broken Subversion client (such as git-svn), unnormalized content could have been written to the repository. To avoid this, you could write a pre-commit hook to prevent unnormalized content. Hopefully a future version of the Subversion server will do this for you, but at present, it does not.
