The $Id$ keyword came up while talking with Angel and I realized that the svn:keywords property doesn't get set on PKGBUILD for new packages, and thus $Id$ doesn't get updated on commit. I believe we should fix this, as this information is useful when determining when a PKGBUILD was last modified and by whom.
May I suggest we do the following:
- Edit the "Adding a package" section  of the packaging
instructions in the DeveloperWiki to include this step. (Adding `svn propset svn:keywords "Id" new-package/trunk/PKGBUILD' below the $EDITOR line perhaps?) 2) Add this property to all packages (this has been done once before by Aaron, if I remember correctly).
What's your view on this?
I don't see why we need to taint the source files with these ID tags. Isn't SVN enough to give us information about our revision history?
