[Gluster-users] mtime handling seems generally buggy for directories

Hello again,

as stated earlier there is a problem with mtime setting on directories during
healing in replication setup.
Today I tested 2.0.5 and found out that the handling is more or less generally
buggy for directory mtimes.
Simply try this:
untar some kernel archive on your local disk and look at the mtime of the
created top directory. now untar the same archive on an exported gluster fs
and compare the mtimes.
You will find out that mtime on gluster fs is generally not set (by tar), not
only during a healing process. Obviously this is a bug, easy to reproduce.
