Re: preserve modification date on co?

Hi everyone,
    But I think "check-in time" is virtually the same as modification
time, though. The user could have modified the file 1 second before
committing it, or 100 seconds, but I don't see why this history needs to
be preserved. Especially for users checking out these changes, that
history is unimportant, and "check-in time" is all that is needed, as
far as I can tell.

I'm not sure what you mean about modification time being beneficial in
comparing files and directories, though, it seems diff is what you
really want to use, and if the timestamps differ, it still doesn't matter...
