Subject Can file permissions be mainted in tar task?
Date Fri, 16 Mar 2001 23:45:57 GMT

We have been using Ant for compiling our source code and it has been great
(big improvement over make!).  Now we are trying to use it to also create
build tars and I found that the permissions of all files that are tarred are
modified to '666'.  File permissions are set in the source control
(perforce) and I don't want to have to manually modify file permissions in
the build.xml by using the 'mode=' parameter in the tarfileset element of
the tar task.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Fixed in 1.4alpha - first binary without this bug should be the nightly
build of
Now I get to figure out if I can incorporate this bug fix.
