Antwort: RE: ModificationDate after commit

we asked 2002 for an other version controlling identification, but the
company won't change the ModificationDate-Version-Identification.

With CVS wir imported the files and the modification date is stored and
could be checked out. Now we move to svn and I thought that we can use
there some features (merge and commit). To get the repository date we found
a property, but without the possibility to store/save the modification date
from a file in my WC into the repository by using commit/merge I have only
the chance to Import the files to the repository. In this case the correct
date is stored in the repository. At the moment I don't know why this
works, I have to ask my technical guy.
The recommended practice within the windows world is not known by everybody
so I have to look for solutions. But I see that there is an issue #1256
created 2003 which is waiting for programming where absolutly matches my

No chance for that, sorry.

Anyway, version information should rather be stored within the resource
area of the PE file instead of abusing the time stamp for this purpose
(provided that you are really talking about Windows, as the term
"EXE-Files" implies).
Perhaps you might ask them to use the VERSIONINFO statement in their
resource script in order to achieve that. This is the recommended
practice within the Windows world.

Best regards,
