Description Jonathan Kamens 2000-01-30 23:37:08 UTC
I really prefer for tmpwatch to use ctime instead of atime for files in
/tmp and /var/tmp.  In fact, I think that should be the default, but that's
debatable.  What's not debatable, in my opinion, is that tmpwatch should
support ctime for those of us who want to use it.  A patch is attached.

ctime will be supported in 6.2.

Comment 3 Jonathan Kamens 2000-04-12 02:12:59 UTC
This is not fixed in tmpwatch-2.2-1, which is what's currently in /pub/rawhide
on ftp.redhat.com.  I'm going to attach a new patch against tmpwatch-2.2-1.
