It is a regression (on my Fedora at least), as timestamps were preserved

As far as I understand the current story, this is probably due to some
other change since mc didn't change its relevant code recently.

Also, generally it's not feasible to make a release each time a regression
is fixed. Each release fixes twenty bugs and introduces two new, that's the
way it goes :-D

That being said, this timestamp issue plus the pending mcview growing
issues (which are also quite notable usability problems) are I believe a
good reason to schedule a .20 release for the not-so-distant future (let's
say, within a month or so).

Unfortunately, mc 4.8.20 was released only in half a year after May 2017
(November 2017), and it was not included in RHEL 8 (that's the main reason
I was asking to make a release sooner). The version in RHEL/CentOS 8 has
that annoying bug with not preserving timestamps.

Egmont, is there a possibility to release an updated mc package for RHEL 8?
