twiki/tools/mailnotify has -rwxrwx--- which is too restrictive. We missed this file when fixing the permissions. Should be -r-xr-xr-x so that it can be read by all users. No mail notification from twiki.org today due to this permission thingy.

Same for twiki/tools/html2tml.pl (I do not know what package this belongs to.)

-- PTh

It belongs to WysiwygPlugin.

actionnotify has the same problem

-- CrawfordCurrie - 26 Jan 2007

I have changed the MANIFESTs on MailerContrib, WysiwygPlugin and ActionTrackerPlugin in MAIN and MailerContrib, WysiwygPlugin in Patch04x01

Waiting for release


I need to improve the documentation as well, so re-opening.


Added doc on recommended perms to BuildContrib


I guess that in TWiki:TWiki/SettingFileAccessRightsLinuxUnix the line find tools -type f -exec chmod -v 550 {} \; should be modified as well??

-- JosMaccabiani - 26 Jan 2007

Yes. it should be 555. Done

-- KennethLavrsen - 26 Jan 2007

Updated for Patch04x01
