The link below is my solution/hack. It also describes the problems I have
with the FAQ.

If developers are listening, I know that a clean solution is hard, but it
sure would be
better than these non-portable hacks. And it really is a common

IMHO, the variable should be updated at commit time.

                                       Automaticaly updating revision  
Dear List,
I am developping an application and I would like to display the SVN
revision number in an "About" dialog.
I have created a property file containing the $Revision$ keyword and
added the property so that SVN automatically expends the tag with the
revision number.
However, SVN only updates the revision  number when I commit the
property file... Which doesn't change...
Is there a way to force svn to always commit this file in order to
keep the revision up to date ?
Or is there a better way to achieve my goal ?
