RE: Re: Committing file makes it unreadable by group and other

Thanks for the quick responses. Some answers:

1. The directories I'm using are readable by group and other, so the permissions don't seem to be inherited. Maybe they should be, though, and maybe they would be if I knew which Windows security thing to change.

2. I don't see this as a cygwin issue. I am checking out and committing files from Windows Explorer only. I am using cygwin only to observe the problem and temporarily solve it after each file is committed.

3. The umask suggestion was a good one. I am familiar with umask but never had thought to use it with cygwin. I tried changing umask from 0 to 2, but that had no effect on this problem. Files coming from the repository still were not readable by group or other.

So I'd love to hear more suggestions. By the way, when I once complained about the "reverse logic" of umask, a friend offered to write me a book titled "You and Umask."

Is it that the permissions are inherited from the parent directory?

I disagree. By that argument you should be using a Cygwin text editor
aswell. People use Cygwin so they can mix Unix tools (typically gcc
etc) and Windows tools (typically editors, version control etc) in the
same environment. We use TortoiseSVN, a Windows text editor, and a
Windows difference viewer, but all our build process happens in Cygwin.
  If I wanted a 100% unix environment I'd use Linux.

My files are always checked out with drwxr-xr-x+ using TSVN. Note that
if you do use the Cygwin command line client for whatever reason (and
this should occur in a *different* working copy) you will need to set
svn:executable on executable files or Cygwin will not check them out
with executable permissions.
