Preserve file timestamp when extracting packages
Many parts of the internet infrastructure use timestamps, but when Octopus extract files from NuGet packages the original timestamps are overwritten with the time of extraction. This causes pain with load-balancers, edge caching, file sync...
It would be very (very very) nice if Octopus would maintain the original timestamp from the original file upon extraction.
This was shipped in Octopus 3.4. We have automated end-to-end testing in place which guarantees the desired behaviour as long as you use the tools provided by Octopus Deploy for creating packages, or another method which preserves the file time stamps. Some packaging techniques lose the original file timestamps.

Octopus, can you Mark this as done?

It appears that recent updates in Octopus (probably v3.4) have solved this issue.
