Hi all,

Haven't played around with scheme in a while, but recently was motivated to 
take a peek at what eggs were currently available. I noticed at the [egg 
index]( that although 
there is much useful info provided (such as description, license, and egg 
version),  there are no egg release dates listed --- only the egg version 

While I understand that some may be hesitant to display dates, since there are 
likely many chicken eggs that are good but also were released some time ago 
(and you may not want to give the impression that you've got old eggs), it 
makes it difficult for new users to get an idea of what's current/active vs 
possibly inactive. Date of the egg's release is just as important to see as its 
version or other info, and also sends a clear message that the egg index is 
more than just a showcase but is in fact *the* tool for finding and selecting 

Does the egg packaging format support a field for release date?
