Re: Export without last-commit timestamp

Thanks for the clarification and reply Mark.

I don't fully grasp the timestamp / date modification handling in
Subversion, but it does seem that I'm not asking much. Normal svn
checkout respects the last modified date of my files. I just want an
svn export option to exhibit the same behavior, not rely on another
stored property. I suppose I should have written this as

One for the change request pile.
