Summary 0001331: pax atime and mtime keyword descriptions should refer to st_atim and st_mtim
Description When the standard was updated to support finegrained timestamps, a change to pax was missed where it refers to the st_atime and st_mtime members of the stat structure but should now refer to st_atim and st_mtim.

Since the text uses the word "member" and there are no stat structure members called st_atime and st_mtime, it is not possible to misinterpret the text as referring somehow to the st_atime and st_mtime macros, and so this should be treated as a minor editorial error.

(There is also a reference to an "st_mtime field" in the ar RATIONALE section, but I believe that one should not be changed as it is describing the historical 4.4BSD ar format, and the 4.4BSD stat structure had an st_mtime member, not an st_mtim member.)
Desired Action On page 3082 line 102809 section pax, change:
the st_atime member
the st_atim member

On page 3084 line 102881 section pax, change:
the st_mtime member
the st_mtim member
