Created and modified date stamps =?

What creates the data stamps?.. is it just like the filename and what the client uploading wants to suggest??

Yes, these are nothing to do with the network, entirely determined by the client.

SInce before I joined the project, each file has had created and modified metadata, which is first set at time of put, so it only reflects network actions.

In the recent commit that added support for empty directories, I also added fields o_created and o_modified to store the timestamps from the local filesystem as well. This will permit adding a flag to files get to restore original timestamps upon retrieval. Likewise, on unix there is a mode_bits metadata field, for saving/restoring local permissions. To be clear, at this time, retrieval ignores these fields, but its on my todo list.

ps: “o_” stands for original, as in the original file.
