Version: 0.2.15
Severity: normal

Hey StevenK,
The "The file config.{guess,sub} contains a timestamp line that is less
than 2002" warning is invalid for packages built using CDBS as it will
update those files during the build when autotools.mk is invoked. To
avoid bloating the diff, CDBS will restore the original & outdated files
before generating the diff.
Yours sincerely,
Andrew "Netsnipe" Lau
