Re: Keeping last-modified dates

I brought this question up too, at least a year ago, or so.

Answers were quite the same: make etc...

But what gives me hope for the inclusion of an option to PRESERVE the
actual time of a checked-in file is that there is more than only one or
two requests for such a feature.

I understand arguments concerning make, though...

I personally use SVN not only for source code (mostly under Windows), but
also for ALMOST ALL my other files (DATs, DOCs, XLSs, PPTs and many more),
because I work on more than only one computer, but want to have my
up-to-date files on all of them with complete history...

In this situation I do miss this feature quite often. It's really sad to
get always the timestamp for the check-in time, instead of the actual
timestamp on all these files... It's a loss of information in some cases.

I would be really worthwhile to have this feature ***not only in a certain
branch of the subversion code*** but as a standard option for the normal

I vote for this!
