Subject Re: "Replace" ANT task overwrites read-only files
Date Thu, 28 Oct 2010 13:42:19 GMT
  Hello Marco,

this has been done in SVN (yet unreleased) but not for the replace task.

the bug report  https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=49261 
mentioned mainly the copy task.

Do you want to open a bug report ?

Regards,

Antoine
