    Description

      The touch command was added by HADOOP-9214, but the usage instructions and docs have never aligned with the code.

      The code uses a timestamp format of:

       new SimpleDateFormat("yyyyMMdd:HHmmss");
      

      But the docs indicate it should be yyyyMMddHHmmss.

      While I believe the format in the docs is better, tools or applications may be relying on the old format now, so I suggest we simply update the docs and usage, and improve the error message if the wrong format is used.
