I don't know if this qualifies as a bug or intended behavior. But I recently ran node export on about 16,000 nodes and it worked great. Until I noticed that this set the modified/updated date on all the nodes to the current date. This is a huge problem for my site as the specific update status is vital to how I use those nodes in the site and now they are all changed. I wasn't modifying anything so I thought, and I never made a backup. Now I'm stuck trying to figure out how to import the old status from another db.
Its not made clear anywhere on the modules page or read me or documentation that exporting the nodes alters your node's updated status. If I had known I would have never used the module.
Is this what its supposed to do? or is there anyway to avoid altering the node updated status when using this module?
