Fine.

When files in a directory are changed, the directory doesn't change - only if files are
created or removed.
It may be that your editor uses temporary files in this directory and causes the mtime
to change - maybe you can set that path to some other, fixed location like /tmp.

There's no easy way to do that *yet*.

Does it hurt that much to allow property changes on the directory to be committed? It
takes only a few bytes in the repository (AFAIK).
Why do you want to avoid that?

You could try using "fsvs ci -ftext" or "fsvs ci -fnew,deleted" - although you should be
warned: there be dragons here (still).


Otherwise you'd need a way to selectively ignore changes on entries ... Hmmm.


Regards,

Phil
