I have a document which uses the changes package. A friend and I are planning to co-author an Analysis textbook, and I have things set-up so that each of us can edit the .tex file and then make edits using the changes package. Is there a way to date-stamp those edits? Or, is there another package similar to changes that would allow for a time-stamp? Also, do I need to add a MWE, or is this a case where the question can be answered without one?

Therefor you need a version control system like git or svn. Then you can add information like time-stamp. LaTeX can't save hours/minutes. You can manually add some static specification by remark={changed 2013/06/13} – Marco Daniel Jul 13 '13 at 6:49
