Suggestion/question - file permissions

From: <ANDREW.LUCAS_at_L-3Com.com>

I've got subversion running under a yellow-dog linux box.

I noticed that although it stores the file permissions (eg: chmod 755
<myfile>) when you first commit a file, subsequent changes to the
permission settings don't appear to get updated. They aren't considered
a file change. They also don't appear to get changed to the new values
even if you edit the file and subsequently commit the changed file.

The only way I've managed to change the permissions on a file already
committed was to delete it from subversion and then re-commit it. I
needed to do this to make a script file executable.

Is this behavior by design?

If the permissions are going to be kept initially, can't changes to the
file permissions also be considered a file change that could be updated
and tracked within subversion?

And no, I'm not sure how other platforms might deal with this idea.

I also haven't searched the known issues / etc so apologies up front if
this is a duplicate.
