Mirrored git repos probably should use the same timestamp, e.g. the "master" or "private" git
server's local time. Replicated repos have a delay compared to when you made changes in your
private repo, that is ok, replication is not what makes commit order inconsistent with time, it's
the act of pulling/merging from a server with misconfigured time and gitweb.cgi trusting "creation
time", right?  Or is replication the same thing as merging/pulling?
