I use the package svninfo to put the svn revision on my title page so that I know which version people are looking at when they give me feedback. My titlepage also contains the current date though from the command \today.

It seems that svninfo overwrites that value of \today to give me what seems like the date of last check-in or something.

How do I insert the actual current date at compile time independent of any svn date, even when I am using the svninfo funtionality elsewhere in my document?

    Could you add a minimal example to play with?

The documentation mentions the package option notoday, which is intended to do what you want.

    Sometimes a one liner was exactly what you were looking for ;-)
