Each revision in the subversion repository contains a "revision
property" called "svn:date". This property records the time of the
"commit" or "check in"; it does not record the time that the file
was modified before the commit. You can use "svn log" to see these
timestamps.

When you check out a file, the time stamp of the file is set to the
current time (the time when you do the "svn checkout" or "svn update");
it is not set to the time recorded in the svn:date property.

There are several third party packages that add extra features over
and above what subversion itself provided. I think you could find a
package that adds an additional property to each file to keep track of
the file's time stamp.
