I don't recall ever seeing the message and it doesn't seem to be in the
archives at, so I think it's safe to say that it never got
sent to the list.

I'm not sure what you're trying to do, but an initial checkout will set
the new working files' timestamps to the timestamps in the repository. 
A subsequent checkout of the same working directory behaves like update
and sets any new or updated files' timestamps to the current time (which
is absolutely necessary for tools like "make" to work correctly).
