Subject Re: Set read-only flag on unpacked dependencies
Date Fri, 02 Sep 2011 14:58:05 GMT
I take it I need to write a little plugin :)

BTW, for any who are curious, the purpose is that because some of our
components are C++, they deliver both dlls and headers for the interface, so
unlike C# and other languages where interfaces are binary too, we have the
problem where we might accidentally modify a header file not realizing it
came from a dependency, and never find out about it until it breaks someone
else.  Hence, the idea we came up with was to automatically flag the
dependency files as read-only after unpacking.
