Tortoise SVN - Keyword for Date/Author of File Addition to Repo

Go To


Are there a set of SVN keywords which resolve the author and date properties on when a file was added (i.e. created) in SVN? $Date$ and $Author$ appear to only resolve to the user/date of the last commit.

I've trawled through the SVN docs, here and Google but can't find a definitive answer on this.

Thanks in advance

The purpose of Keyword Substitution is to always update to the last commit.

If you only want the original author and date then you could remove the keywords or svn:keywords property after the first substitution has occurred.

I suspected as much, thanks for clearing the air. Would have been nice not to have to do that thoug - raven 2012-04-10 11:16
