fedpkg does not preserve archive mtime on upload

That breaks other automation and make people unhappy.

Cf the last messages in
https://pagure.io/packaging-committee/issue/719


Unfortunately this is how HTTP file upload works. The mtime is not send to the server, so it can not be preserved. To make this work, the dist-git cgi script that accepts the upload would have to be modified to accept the mtime and set it explicitly. Only then can fedpkg actually do something.

That feature should be requested here:

@lsedlar

And the nice dist-git upstream did as you requested (kuddos to @clime)
https://github.com/release-engineering/dist-git/issues/21

Please confirm him the proposed change works for fedpkg and that it can preserve source mtimes by default now.

This should get fedpkg to send the value: rpkg#395

The fix should go out in the next release of python-rpkg (the library under fedpkg that does the heavy lifting).
