There may be an issue about this somewhere, but this can cause
non-increasing commit times, if a large commit is started before a
small one and completes after it. So, non-incremental commit-times may
not only be caused by loading different dump streams into 1
repository, we cause them ourselves too.

Shouldn't we set svn:date just before finalizing the transaction?

bye,

Erik.

PS: This may not be a problem with most OSS repositories, but I expect
it to be a bigger problem in corporate environments, where server load
may be heavier at specific hours.
