Expansion does not occur on checkin, but on checkout, and even then, 
only in your copy -- that one you see (the internal Subversion copy is 
untouched).  You have to edit a property for the file where you want 
substitutions.  That property is named "svn:keywords" and its value 
decides which kind of substitution you want to allow.

This is all theory for me, I never used them.
