Bo is correct. I was mistaken. As he and others have pointed out, the timestamp is set to the first time the files are imported. I still believe that this is a bad default behaviour for import. What happened was this: I checked a large existing project into CVS. All the original file timestamp information was lost and the timestamps were set to the date of the first import. A lot of information was lost. When a file is first imported into a module the timestamp of the file should be kept intact. The whole point of having a version control system is to preserve information about a project. Throwing out valuable info in its first step seems wrong. What makes matters worse is that there doesn't even seem to be an option to preserve file timestamp. -Scott "Bo Berglund" <bo.berglund at telia.com> wrote in message news:3c165b74.673839439 at news.cvsnt.org... > On Tue, 11 Dec 2001 17:02:36 +0000 (UTC), "MHO" <scott at mho.net> wrote: > > >Well, when I do a "cvs checkout" of my module, all the files are given the > >current date and time.
