Is this section from the packaging guidelines what you're after?
"When downloading sources, patches etc, consider using a client that
preserves the upstream timestamps. For example wget -N or curl -R. To
make the change global for wget, add this to your ~/.wgetrc:
timestamping = on, and for curl, add to your ~/.curlrc: -R."
Indeed, thanks for pointing this out, Todd!
Toshio, forget my request then, unless you want to consolidate or
rearange parts of the guidelines talking about handling upstream
