Unfortunately Subversion doesn't store modification times in its
repository. It only stores the time of the commit.

Normally when you check out a working copy from a repository, the
modification time of the items you check out is set to the current
date and time. You can, instead, have Subversion set this to the date
and time when the items were committed. Set "use-commit-times = yes"
in the [miscellany] section of your ~/.subversion/config file.

You can change the commit time after the fact. So if you commit just
this single file, then changing the time of the commit would
effectively change the time the file was modified. Use "svn propset
svn:date --revprop -r <the-revision-number>
'2003-11-07T00:00:00.000000Z' url://of/repository"
