New Revision: 10844

provide solvable:installtime for product solvables
if (!s)
+ struct stat st;
s = pool_id2solvable(pool, repo_add_solvable(repo));
repodata_extend(data, s - pool->solvables);
handle = repodata_get_handle(data, s - pool->solvables -
+ if (!fstat(fileno(fp), &st))
+ {
+ repodata_set_num(data, handle, SOLVABLE_INSTALLTIME,

That's the last inode change time. Don't you mean "st.st_mtime"?

Thanks for catching this.

Actually, I was unsure what to use for a 'product' _install_time.
st_mtime didn't seem right since modification != installation. So I
choose st_ctime, assuming that inode changes are less likely.

Well, traditionally access time change is also a inode change, thus
ctime changed on every file access.
Linux seems to be different here, file access seems to only change
atime. Anyway, every write changes both ctime and mtime, so mtime is
the one that changes the fewest.
Unix doesn't maintain a 'creation time' at all.
