The time stamp refers to the time zone of the server.

grass.itc.it: IT = Italy (CET, Central European Time = GMT-1).

Mirrors download upon their schedule which depends on the
mirror administrator.

Trick: Download the CVS snapshot once and then use
in the GRASS 5.7 source code directory:

- once only (as CVS remembers): 
     cvs login 
       (password: grass)

- to update:
     cvs -z3 up -dP

I did this over years with a 56k modem. Take a few minutes
depending on the number of changes.
