Subject [jira] Commented: (AMQ-701) Unix scripts in distro should have mode 755

Hiram Chirino commented on AMQ-701:

I think going with patform specific distributions is the way to go.  It solves problems like
Windows users not being able to read the README and LICENSE files due to EOL issues.  Same
thing applies to the eamples and documentation.

I would be open to creating *, *-windows.tar.gz, *, and *-unix.tar.gz
if you really think that folks on both patforms want to have the zip and tar.gz options. 
But I don't think that is the case either.

Also when a user uses cygwin, he's going to want to use the unix distribution since the EOL
characters are unix style and he can use .sh files to launch activemq.  So I'm not sure there
is a down side this yet.
