Re: Error during checkout - svn: Date parsing failed

Okay, I figured out my problem. I was using the examples of svn propset
from the online book, which all seem to have the property value enclosed
in single quotes. You do NOT want this when setting svn:date! It keeps
the quotes as part of the property value, and thus causes the Date
parsing failed message to occur.
