2.1.7 Working file mtime option

Two commands that mutate the working file (see Invoking ci, see Invoking co) accept an option of the form -M or -Mrev.

This option works with -u or -l to specify that the working file’s modification time should be set to the date associated with revision rev (defaults to the branch tip if unspecified).

Like -T, this can be useful when the working file is named in a Makefile target’s list of prerequisites.
