patch to prevent timestamp in docs
Description of problem:
epydoc adds a timestamp to the footer of the html files it generates.
This is pretty much useless, but causes unnecessary noise and prevents the build from being easily reproducible. (If I build from the same srpm twice, I get different results)
The attached patch prevents this timestamp from being added and adds an '--include-timestamp' argument, in case anyone does indeed need it.
The patch was submitted to upstream here: (even though upstream seems dead)
Note that upstream added a '--supress-timestamp' option in svn, but didn't do a release with that, so the patches differ.
I decided to change the default, because otherwise we would have to change every package that uses epydoc.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Fixed in rawhide, let me know if we need the fixes in the other branches.
