    Hi Chris,

    Thank you for your feedback. The "# days ago" entry indicates the time the commit was made. The kind of version control dictates the value shown on screen. In case of Centralised Version Control Systems, the time shown in Go is the timestamp of the commit made, which approximately will be same as the timestamp the pipeline triggered because of those changes. In case of Distributed Version Control Systems, the time shown in Go is the timestamp of the local commit made for those changes and not the timestamp the changes were pushed upstream. Git, for e.g., maintains this local commit timestamp when pushed and hence Go assumes that it was made "x hours/days ago" depending on how long before the local commit was made.

    As an action point, we'll analyse how to make that more evident, either by appropriate labels or tooltips. We'll keep you informed about it.

    Thanks.
