I downloaded some archives from ftp.iana,org and inside them the
timestamps were different from the above reported 2011-10-13 00:00:00.

Maybe only the upload of the archives was performed with a command
which was setting creation time (or last change time) to upload time.

In github I could not find the archive files, and therefor not the
creation (or last changed) timestamps for these archives.
