RE: Preservation of files dates on checkout ...

Thanks. Just the ticket. I also realized that TortiseSVN also supports
this flag.

This allows Nant / Ant copy commands to update based on mod time vs.
current time. Much more efficient as long as any give client is kept
properly in sync.

This doesn't preclude that our build system needs to generate a
definitive change log between commits of our runtime images. For this,
we'll be using the svn status output.

Check out the use-commit-times option in your client config.


You can't preserve the timestamp from the system that did the commit,
but when you check the files out they'll be given a timestamp matching
when the file was last committed to the repository.
