Yes, like others have said. May just been a case of no checkins being done. 
The index.xml file then still contains the old date. The filename reflects 
the date & time when the tarball was generated, not the actual contents.

Now, sometimes changes are made on a day and the tarball you have don't 
contain those changes. That's a matter of timing. Tarballs are generated 
daily at 1 AM PDT. CVS commits that same day may be made up to 1 AM the next 
day. So the tarball won't contain it yet until the next day when the 
end-of-previous-day snapshot is generated.
