cd my_git_managed_dir
ls -la ;# all my files are listed with correct time stamps
rm -rf * ;# this will not delete .git, just everything else (I have no other .dot files)
git reset --hard
ls -la ;# all my files are listed with current time stamps, which is not what I wanted :(

Am I doing something wrong? Or is it really possible that git is so stupid it does not save file time stamps? The only explanation I could find was a thread from 2007, which talks about "make" and doesn't really explain anything. So annoying, I was just starting to like git :-(

Edited - adding #helpme tag. Also, is there a mailing list I can use to ask this question?
