Hi Vincent,

Searching through the issues database, I came across issue #4585 [1]
which you filed previously and this sounds related to the same issue.

Are you still using svn 1.8.x? If not, which version are you using now?

A few svn:keywords bugs were fixed in 1.9.x, including issue #1975
[2], where svn:keywords were not being re-expanded after 'svn switch';
perhaps that fix is common to this case as well. Note that 1.9.x went
end-of-life earlier this year, so if you could try with 1.10.x or
1.14.x, that would be preferred. (And 1.8.x went end-of-life more than
2 years ago.)

If the file timestamp changes, but not the file contents ('touch' the
file and then run 'svn update'), does keyword re-expansion occur?

If the file contents change (e.g., add 1 character to the file
contents then run 'svn update') does the expected keyword expansion
take place?

Thanks,
Nathan
