After some digging this is a CVS thing:
--- /dev/null 1 Jan 1970 00:00:00 -0000
+++ dspam_train.1 24 Jan 2006 15:43:12 -0000 1.1

That's how CVS shows adds. Note that they include the revision number
after the date so even CVS isn't strictly following the GNU docs I
linked to.

Eclipse needs to just be smart and realize that not everyone uses the
same exact format here.
