# Helper script to update the Last modified timestamp of files in a Git SCM
# Projects working Copy
# When you clone a Git repository, it sets the timestamp of all the files to the
# time when you cloned the repository.

# Web application have a proper cacheing mechanism so that it can re-cache files
# (into a webtree) that have been modified since the last cache.
