RE: New Daylight Savings Time

After reading this thread again, it seems that subversion simply relies
on win32 API calls. So, I think you are correct, the host system (in our
case, WinXP), should have the responsibility of properly handling the
DST changes.

Shouldn't it be the responsibility of the host environment to provide
the proper timezone information? Subversion appears to store everything
as UTC - I would imagine that any "conversion" would be done by checking
the host environment for a UTC offset.
