Subject Re: DO NOT REPLY [Bug 41985] - Zip task changes the file attributes of entries when updating the archive
Date Tue, 10 Apr 2007 17:40:41 GMT
I've already replied to BugZilla for reasons why Ant behaves the way that 
it does, but my standard advice to people who need to preserve permissions 
in archives is to exec the proper native archiver.

Steve - your description is right, that is exactly the problem...or WAS 
the 
problem, since you now showed me that I missed this part in the specs.

I will retry with the <zipfileset>, although I do believe that the 
filesystme's attributes should have been preserved when zipping by 
default, 
maybe you can consider adding a new parameter to the <zip> task to specify 

this.

FYI - I have tried to zip with winzip and 7-zip, both of these zipped the 
files WITH their original attributes within the filesystem, so why 
shouldn't 
ANT behave the same?
