Issue #6 on hold

Basic usage setup for tracking timestamps of all repository files

I was surprised to discover that with this extension I'm not able to track timestamps of all files in the repository.

I just want to save and restore the original file timestamps for all files, without running any additional hg commands. Is this possible?

This use case should also be documented.

    Well, this is not true. You ARE able to track timestamps of all files, but not automatically. You just have to add all the files of your repository to the .hgtimestamp database file.

    This CVCS behaviour is - currently - not within the scope of this extension, so it will not be documented now. Please see other extensions that are better suited for this, like mentioned in the Mercurial Wiki here: http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/TimestampExtension .

    In addition, there is a newer approach to the timestamp aspect with this extension here: http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/TimestampModExtension . This might be just what you are looking for.
