RE: Potential New User questions

But what I *really* want is the actual file modified date time.

I have a strong belief that a version control system should not alter
the files in any way. i.e. you will get out of the system *exactly* what
you put in, how it stores this internally is irrelevant, and you should
be able to get back every single version of a file that you checked in.

And if you want to have the commit times in your working copy and not
the update times, then you can use the use-commit-times option.
