When an existing item has changed in the upstream feed it is fine to update the item, which then also changes the modification date.

When an upstream item has not changed, our feed item should also not change. If it does change, that is indeed a bug. Are you saying this is the case?

Not sure. May be a configuration option to not update existing items would be nice.

155 continue

reindexObject() will change modified. Why are we doing this?

Indeed, it does not seem to make sense to do a reindexObject here. We could do portal_catalog.catalog_object(prev) here to only update the catalog, but nothing has changed.

In the tests we do have the situation that the entry has changed compared with the stored objectInfo. I now check this and save the new entry only when there is a difference. That still does not require a update to the catalog.

Fixed in r236370.

Released 2.0.4 with this fix.
