Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed the timestamps for sup have been
reset a lot lately?

I supped on Saturday night.  Sunday I had to re-get the whole tree.  Later
on Sunday I again had to reget the whole tree.

I think the timestamps got reset on Monday as well, but I'm not sure.  I
realize NetBSD is a volunteer effort, of course ... I'm just curious if
there is some problem that is being looked into, or perhaps will be fixed
soon.  If it is going to be fixed sometime in the future, then I'll gladly
wait until that time comes.

Oh, I was using an old old version of sup.  I upgraded to a newer one (which
requires me to sup everything again, since the format of the timestamp file
changed, but I was expecting that, so it's not a big deal).  If it was the old
sup client that was broken, then that's fine with me.

(And before anyone says anything ... I tried using -o.  It doesn't help a damn
bit.  And to be honest, from reading the man page for sup, I don't quite
see how it could).
