Hi all,

I have some large files tracked in git and I have to track their mtime 
because of some legacy software. With another tool I save and restore their 
mtime. When I restore their mtime git status rereads the files to update 
the mtime in the index. I would like to improve that because there are too 
many files, the whole I/O is too slow and the whole process is triggered 
too often.

I would like a way to tell git to checkout a file and set a given mtime at 
the same time so the index is updated with the mtime but the file is not 
rewritten because the working copy is clean. This would solve my problem. 
Do you know a way to do this?

Do you know any other way to handle this properly?

Thanks in advance, and happy new year,
