Bug Report: Applying patch does not update file timestamp.
When I apply a patch to a local copy that is up to date with the repository, it does not update the modification timestamps of the file, and I can not 'commit' the change until I 'touch' the files. I'm just playing around, but here are my steps.
OS: Windows 2000 SP4
*Create directory d:\svn\a and d:\svn\b
*Create repository in d:\svn\a
*Create a file 'test.txt' in d:\svn\b and edit it to contain 'I am a test'
*Import it into the repository
*Check out file:///d:\svn\a into d:\svn\b
*Modify test.txt to contains 'I am not a test'. It is now showing that it has changed.
*Create a patch
*Revert changes. Verify changes: 'test.txt' now says 'I am a test'
At this point the timestamp for 'test.txt' is 10:24 PM
* Apply patch (it is 10:30 PM), verify it.
At this point, the file now contains 'I am not a test', but the timestamp is still 10:24 PM, so I can not commit it until I 'touch' it.
