Description Keith Seitz 2002-10-16 18:25:24 UTC
Description of Problem:
Eclipse doesn't preserve the file permissions on a checked out project; well, it
cannot do it, either, when just importing from an exiting file system!

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create new C/C++ project (File->New->Project->C Project->blah blah blah)
2. File->import->file system
3. select some version of a project

Actual Results:
None of the configure scripts are executable

Expected Results:
File permissions should be preserved. I can't even imagine why they would
magically change when copying a file. Oh, wait, let me guess, don't trust the
OS! Write our own file system utilites.

Reopening: I'm not sure exactly when this reappeared, but I'm seeing this
behavior again in the beehive -15 RPM.
