Management by statistics is a bad way to go, but if that's what your
managers require, so be it.

> The issue I am having is with the revisions log, that contains each commit for the system, and the date is stored as a long number.  In Tortoise it seems dates are stored in UTC format, but exported as a number.  I am not sure how to convert this number to a date in UTC format or any other.   Does anyone know how to convert this?  Preferably in C# code, but any would be fine.

How are you reading this in the first place?

Subversion stores all dates in UTC. This isn't Tortoise, it's the
Subversion server libraries. Translation to local formats/timezone is
done by the client.

It's the number of seconds since the Epoch - 1/1/1970 00:00:00Z. The
.NET Framework's Time & Date methods have lots of ways to work with
