[Rake-devel] Copying directories when contents change

One of my tasks in rake is to copy a direcoty, as so:

file directory_copy => directory do
	#copy the directory
end

However, if I modify a file within "directory", the modified date does  
not change on "directory" itself, and thus the two fall out of sync.  
I'm sure this problem must be common, is there an "accepted" way of  
dealing with this?
