Hello,
In the context of the SoftwareHeritage project [1], we would like to be
able to ingest regularly the content of the gnu mirror [2] (our task
reference [3]).
We already developed the tar loader necessary for that [4] (We used it
to ingest in 2015 a rsync mirror we have).
For that task, we need to implement the lister now [5]. We plan on using
the listing you provide [6]. But in its current state, it's missing one
bit, the tarball's modification time.
We could possibly fetch this for the page exposing the tarball but
that'd mean unnecessary burden on your server (but also more work for us
and possibly bugs ;).
If that's not too much work, would it be possible to add that
information to the listing?
