We have a bunch of timestamps in /distfiles:

-rw-r--r-- 1 32 Jan 25 16:00 /distfiles/timestamp.chk
-rw-r--r-- 1 42 Jan 25 15:00 /distfiles/
-rw-r--r-- 1 11 Jan 25 16:00 /distfiles/timestamp.mirmon
-rw-r--r-- 1 40 Jan 25 16:00 /distfiles/timestamp.x

Note that they're being updated.

would be accepted until February (I think).
