Re: svn commit: rev 2637 - trunk/subversion/mod_dav_svn

From: Greg Stein <gstein_at_lyra.org>

The DAV:creationdate property states when the *resource* came into
existence. Since that is the version resource, then the creationdate
effectively means the revision date.

On the "public" resources, the creationdate would represent the
first-existence date (as you stated in the comment), and the getlastmodified
property would be the date on the created-rev.
