Subject: patch: --dry-run changes mtime of parent directory
Date: Thu, 25 Jul 2013 10:59:13 +0200
Package: patch
Version: 2.7.1-3
Severity: normal

Hello,

since 2.7 hit unstable, dry-run patching a file will alter the mtime
of the parent directory. However, previous versions did preserve mtime
and that's what I would expect from a dry-run option, too.

Dirk
