Ticket #627 (closed defect: fixed)
sdist drops executable permissions for files in the tarball
|Reported by:||draconx||Owned by:|
After upgrading to Cabal 1.8, running './Setup.lhs sdist' in any package is generating tarballs with bizarre permissions:
- Every directory has mode 0755.
- Every file has mode 0600.
In particular, the executable bits from files are lost, and files should be group/world readable. Cabal 1.6 generates correct permissions.
