I am trying to configure my svn repository to automatically set the svn:keywords property on every file.
My understanding is that I just add these lines to the configuration file and every new .rb file that is added or imported to the svn will have the svn:keywords property.
enable-auto-props = true
*.rb = svn:keywords = Author Revision Date Id
At this point I am experiencing a couple problems. The svn I am using was set up by someone who no longer works at the company(and we are no longer in contact with him). We access our svn though Apache using the mod_dav_svn module.
My first problem is that I am unsure of which configuration file I need to change. I put these lines in both the svnserve.conf file in our svn's directory and the /root/.subversion/config file. Neither appeared to have any effect and I have been unable to find out how to determine which config file the svn is using.
The other issue I have is that if I am using the correct configuration file, how do I activate the changes? I didn't find any consistently running processes that I would have to restart. I tried restarting the Apache server and rebooting the entire server but that didn't appear to solve the problem.
Thanks for any help.
