[Bug 332646] Re: sftp does not set timestamps


I can confirm this still happens in 14.04, even when copying from 14.04
to another 14.04.

  sftp does not set timestamps

Status in gvfs:
Status in gvfs package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: gvfs

  when copying or moving files to a directory mounted over sftp, the
  time stamps are not preserved.

  this affects both hardy and intrepid (in hardy, it was tested with a
  patched version of nautilus hence that version used to forget
  timestamps on copy anyway). in both cases, i tested it locally and
  everything was preserved as it should be.

  moreover, when moving, nautilus first displays the correct time stamp
  and only on refreshing shows the wrong updated one.

  as timestamps can be considered considered important information, i
  suggest this bug be treated as "losing data without notice".
