I have a series of python scripts with execute permissions in Linux. They are stored in SVN.
If I then run
svn up to update them, the overwritten files are back to 644 – ie no execute permissions for anyone.
Yes I could just script it to
chmod +x * afterwards, but surely there’s a way to store permissions in SVN or to maintain them when you update?
Any suggestions appreciated.
You need to set the svn:executable property on the file.
svn propset svn:executable true <filename>
