Locale used when expanding keywords ($Date$)

is there any way to change the behavior of the SVN client related to keyword expansion?
It seems that the client uses the current locale to expand $Date$.

This causes a problem for us. We use Czech locale and the result of the expansion
contains east-european (non-ascii) characters that are specific for our language
(usually in the abbreviated name of the day).

When the expansion occurs in an XML file (which contains ASCII characters only),
then the parser expects its content to be encoded in UTF-8 (because of the regional characters).

The parser rejects such a file as corrupted.


It would be nice, if the SVN client could be told to use some specific locale (e.g. en_US)
- instead of the current one. Alternatively, the server's locale could be used.

When the development team is located in multiple countries, the $date$ is shown
in multiple formats (locales). Which is also confusing.

I found some similar posts from the past years, but none of them contains
any reasonable solution:




Does the current SVN version solve this problem?
Are there any plans to modify the client in relation to locale usage?

Thanks in advance
