How do you turn off Requires-Lock for every file in a SVN Repository and all future files that get added to it?

Is this related to the "svn:needs-lock" property? There might be more here: – Stijn Sanders Nov 29 '09 at 20:00

It's off by default. You can recursively remove the property on all files in a working copy:

svn propdel svn:needs-lock --depth=infinity 

Normally new files don't get the property set automatically. It was probably configured to as an auto-prop.

See $HOME/.subversion/config (linux) or %APPDATA%/Subversion/config (Windows). Look for auto-props, to see if svn:needs-lock gets set.
