Re: Re: Subversion erase original date of files ??

On first blush it doesn't look like versioned properties would be the best
place to store modification dates, as by default the text would change while
the properties stayed the same. And unversioned properties are not strongly
tied to a single file, so they may not be the best place to store this
information either...
