RE: [Subclipse-users] How to preserve file permissions when using svn commit

Subversion should not attempt to "maintain" file permissions. The
repository holds artifacts (code) that can be checked out in a variety
of contexts: development / sandbox, testing, deployment. Different file
permissions are appropriate in each context. A reasonable default is to
make newly-checked-out code rw for the owner, and read or null for group
and other.

Another perspective: the owner (and Unix group) -identities- will
probably differ in each of these contexts. You cannot assume that the
effective permissions in one context should be the same.

The is is really a Subversion question, not Subclipse. To answer it
though, Subversion does not manage, version, or store file
permissions. The lone exception is that on Unix systems you can set a
property named svn:executable on a file, and if that file is set, then
the client will set the executable bit on the file.
