Subversion and Daylight Savings Time

A recent post to the users@ list reminded me of something I had been meaning
to send to the dev@ list.

We have been getting a lot of inquiries from our customers as to how our
products are impacted by the upcoming changes to DST. Most are looking for
official statements. It might save a lot of time and effort in the long run
if someone crafted a statement about Subversion and posted it to the web
site so that we could link to it when questions come to the mailing lists.

I do not know the ways Subversion might be impacted, but I would assume that
Subversion is a lot like our products and would just be getting the current
time from the OS and converting it to/from UTC using routines provided by
the OS. So as long as the OS is properly patched, there should not be any
issues with Subversion. Anyway, I think an official statement somewhere
would be worth the effort.
