Configure stores {RCS}{dirPermission} and {RCS}{filePermission} as strings instead of octal values.

It goes well as long as you do not touch the value but when you change them you have to hack LocalLib.cfg to get a working installation.

Another urgent bug for 4.1.1

Well, the analysis is not quite right - in fact the problem is the conversion of the value input in the browser - but the gist is correct.


You are aware that the text shown in the delta tooltip is broken also? Not very important but now that you have it fresh in memory it may be the right time to also fix that.

The Item3521 covers this.

I should perhaps be reopening this because this fix has an additional cosmetic.

When you save the data the changed settings are shown. And in case of an octal the value is shown decimal which may confuse a person to think he typed it wrong.

But instead of reopening this I add the extra small bug to 3521 because they are more related and are lower priority than this was.


Merged to TWiki04x01 for rel 4.1.1


See related Item7517.
