svn status does not detect a modification if the same file was touched

Hi all,

I'm using svn version 1.9.3 and I have come across the following:

   - A file named a.txt exists inside a folder in the working copy, which
   has been copied from somewhere else
   - cCopy and replace a.txt with the same file/or modify it by issuing the
   'touch' command
   - Do an svn status, it shows nothing
   - Do an svn info on the file and 'Last Changed Date' shows the same as
   the previous file. It does not get modified even though the file was newly
   copied.
   - But the from java files API, the file is shown with a different
   modified date

Why do we not modify the 'Last Changed Date' when the file was newly
copied/touched?

Thank you,
Sasikala
