Subversion does not store modification times. It stores commit times.

On checkout and update, it can either set the modification time in
your local working copy to the current time (the default), or to the
commit time. If you want the latter, edit your Subversion config file
(e.g. on Unix machines in ~/.subversion/config) to include the line
"use-commit-times = yes"

If you require Subversion to store real modification times, you must
build Subversion yourself from the unofficial text-time branch which
is available here:
