RE: ModificationDate after commit

No chance for that, sorry.

Anyway, version information should rather be stored within the resource
area of the PE file instead of abusing the time stamp for this purpose
(provided that you are really talking about Windows, as the term
"EXE-Files" implies).
Perhaps you might ask them to use the VERSIONINFO statement in their
resource script in order to achieve that. This is the recommended
practice within the Windows world.

Best regards,
