Reply to: Time zone changed in change tracking markersMay 18, 2012 at 9:40 pm
This doesn't really have anything to do with SVN. I only reason I mentioned it was because using it to compare two versions of the file was what showed me that XMetaL had made unexpected changes to the file.
All I am suggesting is that XMetaL should not change the PI's when it reads the file. If the only reason this is done is to show the local time when hovering over the change, then surely this transform could be done “on the fly”. This would have two advantages:
- the modified file would only have the changes the author actually made
- the original timezone information in the change tracking would not be lost
