The DATE column in the repository pages reflects the same DATE as shown in the "Current:" line inside the .info file.
In fact most ALL the data in the repository tables is pulled from the data inside the included .info file.
As revisions are made to a package, the "Change-log:" line in the .info file is written to,
which shows historical data about revisions.
That is my reason for rewriting them all, as the html script needs a consistant data pattern to gather the info sucessfully.
So, if you have downloaded the file PRIOR to the date shown, you are in need of a revision redownload.
Your current local copy of the .dsl file should have a date stamp to compare against.
Check the .info file for any details about revision information...
In the case of GIMP, i did rename the files from
"gimp1_2.dsl" to "gimp1_20.dsl"...,
because I needed to keep them separate when rebuilding it, and when dealing with the upload strategy.
Other contributors are welcome to rename their revisions, as long as those changes are reflected in the .info file.
Obviously, If I had built from an inproved version of the source, like the 2.0 verson of GIMP,
the filenames would most CERTAINLY have changed.
In most cases recently, I'm simply doing maintenance to the same files that were contributed.
At the moment, while dealing with a large flow of incoming traffic,
I have chosen the "K.I.S.S." mode of operation for now.
