Subject [all] Use of svn keywords in source files
Date Thu, 05 Feb 2009 15:19:17 GMT

Is there a particular reason why we use svn keywords like $Id$? I've
personally never found them very useful (the version number in a jar
file is much more informative), and the keywords often confuse diff
and merge tools.

I'm relatively new here, so this probably has been discussed at length
before. Any pointers?
