I'm +1 by inspection. I'm pretty agnostic on the question of leaving the
capability in and would be inclined to do what Casey said and add another jira
if we are interesting removing timestamp handling.
If your project is set up for it, you can reply to this email and have your
reply appear on GitHub as well. If your project does not have this feature
enabled and wishes so, or if the feature is enabled but not working, please
contact infrastructure at infrastruct...@apache.org or file a JIRA ticket
