Depends.  The 17-Jan-2001 timestamp is the date when Ted released the
WIP-0117 e2fsprogs.  Stephen's version is a patch on top of 0117.  So
either Stephen missed it, or he didn't want to change the timestamp
and left it up to Ted for his next release.

He said in his initial posting, and repeated again in a reply to your
note, that _his_ version of the 20010216 RPM has my micro-fix to make
-j work without -J.  So he is correct, and you just haven't been reading
his emails closely enough ;-).

Cheers, Andreas
