[Python-Dev] Freezing the CVS on Oct 26 for SVN switchover

What's the magic to get $Revision$ and $Date$ to be expanded upon
checkin? Comparing pep-0352.txt and pep-0343.txt, I noticed that the
latter has the svn revision and date in the headers, while the former
still has Brett's original revision 1.5 and a date somewhere in June.
I tried to fix this by rewriting the fields as $Revision$ and $Date$
but that doesn't seem to make a difference.

Googling for this is a bit tricky because Google collapses $Revision
and Revision, which makes any query for svn and $Revision rather
non-specific. :-(  It's also not yet in our Wiki.
