Subject: [mapguide-internals] svn timestamp weirdness

Something is screwy with the file timestamps in SVN.

I made a submission at 12:17pm my local time.  I'm in Switzerland, so
that's 11:17am universal time, and 6:17am EST.  I then accessed a
computer in the EST time zone and did "svn update", but the time that
got set on the updated files was 7:17am EST.  The clock on that computer
is correct.

Anyone know why the time is off by one hour?

This messed things up (temporarily) since one of the changed files is a

For reference, here's output using "svn log" on one of the changed

SVN correctly shows +0100 and -0500 for the time offsets, but the actual
submit time is off by one hour.  It thinks I submitted it at 12:17pm
universal time (hence the 13:17 and 07:17 reported times).

Can we get this fixed?
