This instructs the time-stamp package to update the "Version:" time stamp every
time you save the buffer ("last change"), if you have the following in your
`.emacs' config file:

   (add-hook 'before-save-hook 'time-stamp)

I see, thanks for the explanation.

Melpa does not use the version header (just sets the version to the time of the
last commit), and the time-stamp vars just seem useless to me.

Shall I remove both of these additions before checking in the new version?

This version number seems useful to me, to always know when different versions
have been saved, even outside of any VC system.

IMHO, the "last save time" alone is pretty useless, so one shouldn't modify important files outside of VS systems.

May I ask to leave them, if possible?

Sure, I guess, since it serves some purpose. I don't think we have any guidelines about that.
