Re: Problems when using both auto-props and use-commit-times

From: David Budworth <dbudworth_at_eloan.com>

Sorry, didn't make the actual issue clear really

There are two issues:

1) When using 'use-commit-times' in your global config, the files are
indeed stamped with the commit time, but 'svn'(client) seems to not
track what the original commit time of the WC files are.
        This results in all 'svn status' invocations to perform a diff between
the WC and the original version. In effect, subversion thinks I've
done the equivilent of 'touch' on all my files, and shows the entire
tree as 'Modified' immediately after a check out.

2) $Id:$ tags are are not properly stripped down during the diff
If I originally put the tag in as "$Id:$" then add / commit my change.
Any one who gets this file via a new checkout / update will always see
the diff as described below.

After reading your response, I realized that you can set the tag as
"$Id$" without the colon, but I would expect that the colon, if
included, would not produce the diff.

below is the output showing the addition of 2 files, one with $Id:$ and
the other with $Id$
(note: the manual, last I checked, doesn't explicitly say to not use
the colon, and i believe CVS requires it's inclusion, so any file
templates people may be using where the colon exists, become an issue
during cvs->subversion migration)
