EGit checkout does not set execute bit correctly [message #762192] Wed, 07 December 2011 17:12 Go to next message

A simple problem. This is on Linux.

If I clone my Git respository using the git command line, one of the files has the execute bit set for everyone. That's what I expect.

If I clone my Git respository using Eclipse IDE (EGit), that file has the execute bit set for the owner only. That's wrong.

A search of bugzilla and the web shows various apparently-related bugs, but only for Windows, and all several years old. I'm running Indigo SR2.

Can anyone comment on this? Should I be opening a new bugzilla?

Thanks
Matthew

This is due to the limitations of the Java 6 API. Java 7 has the capability, I think,
but there is no code yet. That would only work for Java 7 users, but thats better than
not-at-all. Please open a bug.
