Hi Dave,

I have posted an IMO complete proposal for mtime recording at
http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2006-09/0492.shtml . Search
http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2006-09/index.shtml and
http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2006-10/index.shtml for 'versioning
mtime' to find other people's reactions.

I have stopped development of the feature before starting to implement
the proposal (though nobody really objected, there was no active
support either): other developers thought I could do better doing
other work and in response, I cleared up ra_dav code instead (that's
up for 1.5, but contains no visible changes for users).

Anybody with sufficient time and motivation could implement the
feature I have described though, I think.

HTH,

Erik.
