What I Wanted to Do

Look up docs and figure out what date they’re actually from to make sure I’m looking at the latest version, in case something’s delayed.

What Happened Instead

This popped up in the footer:
28

Reproduction Steps

  1. Go to https://docs.npmjs.com/cli/ci
  2. Scroll down to the footer, right next to the “Found a typo?” text

Details

This is related to tarball content timestamps locked to 1985.

Basically, the website was relying on tarball timestamps in order to display these dates. It will need to look at something else (such as the publish date) in order to fill this in.

This appears to be the same issue as https://github.com/npm/docs/issues/990

This seems to still be a thing:

It will probably continue to be the case until such a time when the docs template is updated. This isn’t really a priority and is even considered a bit of an easter egg, so I’d expect this to stay like this for quite a while.

Last modified in 1985 is also a thing in this forum.

I actually wanted to know when a site was updated and I still don’t know :frowning:
