I don't know if I'm the only one to have a problem with that, but it
would be nice if it was possible, when you pull a bk tree, to have the
commit messages for the csets in that tree be dated from the day you
pulled, and not the day when they went in the source tree.

When I'm working, I just do "bk csets" after I pull from Linus's
tree to review what went in since the last time I pulled.

Yes, but the commit list archive is handy. I have quite good search
capabilities in my mailer for example, and sometimes, when doign
regression, it's quite useful to browse what went in between two
releases with it (it's just more handy than bk csets).

Speaking strictly in terms of implementation, David Woodhouse's bk-commits mailer scripts could probably easily be tweaked to -not- set an explicit Date header on the outgoing emails.

It then becomes a matter of deciding whether this is a good idea or not :)
