Hello,

We frequently use CVS, and the date stamp you are referring to
is what you get when you use CVS. I do not know whether there's
an alternative format available with CVS, but apparently this
is the form by default. I suppose that we could talk to the
developers of CVS about the format, but this is the first
time this has been brought to my attention.

Thank you,

 _ Ian
