When a branch is created (copy branch), all of the files in the newly created branch have their modified dates set to the date/time that the branch is created. Why is that? We were expecting explorer like semantics: copy a file and the created date changes but not the modified date (until it actually gets modified).
One of our developers branched a project, changed a couple of files, and was surprised to see that all of the files were shown as modified while browsing them in explorer. However, I just checked this out in Perforce and they do the same thing, so I'm guessing this is probably a common practice among version control system vendors.[/i]
