And I understand that subversion up to this day does not preserve timestamps when importing files into a repository (although one workaround seems to be available). As I'm working for a project now where this feature is vital - i.e. if we don't find a feasible way to preserve timestamps subversion is out - I want to know if and when this feature will be available . (suspecting the answer is no and never ;-)

The answer is 'no' and 'not any time soon'. Detailing on the second
answer: we're trying to work out a new structure for our working copy
library. The new design should at least provide an easy way to support
this request - not saying the first incarnation will actually
implement it.

Hope that explains it.
