...while it is under version control.
Looks like the developers of cvs have put their projects
under version control so early that they didn't notice that.
I agree that it would make sense to keep the original file
date on import.
As cvs is free software, this will be fixed when somebody is too
annoyed by this behaviour and has the knowledge and time to fix it.
The former is obviously true for you, so where is your patch ;-)
