It seems the Date field of an asset is only modified when a file is initially uploaded, thereby representing an upload date or pseudo-created date (date it was created in Assets and not necessarily when the file was created). Is this correct?
Replacing an existing file with a newly uploaded one does not appear to update the date. Is that a bug or is that intentional?
Are there any other options for modifying the date other than editing it directly after an asset is replaced or writing a hook to do it automatically?
We're using ExpressionEngine 2.5.3 with Assets 2.2.1.
