RE: Re: Is there really no way to keep the file modification time intact?

I haven't posted much but this sounds like a potentially critical issue
to us.

If I understand correctly, if I take a file that was modified, say in

1/01/2003 15:54 16 test.me.txt
-rw-rw-rw- 1 user group 16 Jan 1 2003 test.me.txt

Then I check it in today, the 'time' in Subversion will be 3/2/2007?

To me that's wrong.

I agree it should be an option.

There should also be an option to have the file check out with today's
date, the modification date, or the check in date, in my opinion. I
find all 3 useful in different scenarios.

Migration is definitely one thing, but not all - we frequently have
projects that aren't in source control, someone goes and prods
developers, and then they commit stuff, usually a large bunch of older
