[Pkg-mc-devel] Bug#587372: mc: fish does not preserve modification time when copying files to remote host

Package: mc
Version: 3:
Severity: normal
Tags: upstream

*Since lenny* the "fish" in mc does not preserve the original modification
time of a file that is copied to a remote host, instead it will be changed
to the time of copying. Thus, the files cannot be "synced" or "mirrored".
(It is like "cp -a" would work without the option "-a".) This "annoying"
behaviour appeared first in lenny: in etch the copying to remote hosts
with mc still worked as the copying to a local folder, AFAIR.
(If there is an adjustable option for it then I could not find it... sorry.)
