|[cross-project-issues-dev] Permissions problems on download.eclipse.org|
We've been getting complaints  from our mirror sites that many Permission Denied errors are occurring when syncing with download.eclipse.org. When you upload your files, please ensure that they are world-readable (rw-rw-r), and that directories are world-readable and executable (rwxrwxr-x).
If you use RSYNC, you can simply set your permissions correctly prior to rsync, and use the -p option with rsync. Please note that it is not acceptable to remove file permissions to 'hide' content on download.eclipse.org. If it's there, it should be open to all.
We have automated scripts to fix such anomalies, but since download.eclipse.org now has over 1 million files, these scripts cannot run as often as they used to.
Thanks for your help!
