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?
We should do #1. The Id tag should be set when a package is added to the repo. As for option #2, it has already been done.
Unless I'm missing something, it has only been done once, on 2008-04-18. Packages added after that point do not have the svn:keywords property set (e.g.: aufs2).
(Thanks for amending the developer wiki, by the way.)
