I would like to keep the original time stamp of a file when synchronizing with Ubuntu One. Now Ubuntu One is messing with my time stamps, and I no longer know when I last worked on the file. Ubuntu One also seem to mess up time stamps on the original source host.

This really is a show stopper, and we are just about to implement Ubuntu One across the many users in the organization.

According to FAQ of Ubuntu One, you can't, because Ubuntu One does not sync metadata about files.
