PMS makes no guarantee as to what happens with mtimes, which means you can't rely upon things happening one way or the other. This is deliberate -- preserving mtimes leads to all kinds of weirdness on packages that are generated from a raw tar file rather than from a build system. > Current work-around is tarring up and untarring to preserve mtimes. That's not really any good either. The proper solution would be to fix whatever it is that's mtime-sensitive. -- Ciaran McCreesh
