Unfortunately, mc 4.8.20 was released only in half a year after May 2017

reason I was asking to make a release sooner). The version in
RHEL/CentOS 8 has that annoying bug with not preserving timestamps.
Egmont, is there a possibility to release an updated mc package for RHEL
Why in the world you would be asking Egmont about that :) ? In as far as I
know, he's never worked for RH or maintained mc RPM packages. If you use
RHEL, just open a support ticket, asking them to upgrade mc or backport
the timestamp patch to mc 4.8.19...
