svn:keywords canonicalization.

    Details

      Description

      Currently, all of the keyword values inside files are case-sensitive, but only
      the long forms are case-sensitive when added to svn:keywords.  Since we cannot
      change the behavior of existing svn:keywords, it was decided to canonicalize
      future svn:keywords values.
      
      See this thread for the discussion:
      http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2005-02/0172.shtml
      
      and specifically see the suggested bite-size task here:
      http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2005-02/0217.shtml
      
      Be sure to run the test suite and if necessary, correct any tests which may
      depend on the wrong values.  Please include a patch to the documentation which
      describes that keywords are case-sensitive in the file (which is currently not
      specified) as well as that you can use any of the available aliases in
      svn:keywords and they will be normalized to the long form when added.
