Importing and adding files with actual time stamp?

Marko, Olivier,

I'm taking the opportunnity of this discussion about time stamp.
I am facing similar problem, porting CVS database to SVN ones.

When checkouting a SVN database, all files has same time stamp.
The repository I have ported is the GNU gdb one in which I did some
modifications.
But anyway the original repository, once extracted thru SVN does not
compile because some files, with makefile dependencies, need to be
regenerated. And of course the tools that generate these files are not
delivered.

The only workaround I found is to touch manually some of the files after
the checkout, in order to modify thier time stamp and to avoid some
makefiles rules.

But I'd like an automatic solution that would allow my customers to
checkout my svn database and the compile everything without any other
manipulation.

I though of an other solution but I don't think SVN do that: a kind of
"post extract" phase (like it exist under CADESE configuration
management system). In this phase I will touch the files needed to be
touched.

Of course, if SVN let me put some metadata that allow retrieving of
files with different time stamp, that would be great.

Do you know any other solution ?

Best regards
Denis
