Description Emmanuel Thomé 2004-10-04 03:56:43 EDT
All the files in /usr/share/xemacs/xemacs-packages/lib-src being
scripts, they should have the exec bit set ; it is not the case
(changing this is just a matter of updating the spec file).

[space@dunette lib-src]$ ls -l /usr/share/xemacs/xemacs-packages/lib-src

Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2004-10-06 08:07:30 EDT
True, well pstogif is deliberately not set executable (see bug 64320).

install-sid and send-pr seem to be gnat related and
the rest are from tm.

Any of them that you particularly want to use?
Comment 2 Emmanuel Thomé 2004-10-18 12:10:06 EDT
tm-file and tmdecode are used from emacs' RMAIL mode for extracting
MIME attachments. Not that I advocate for this particular way of
handling MIME, but some people do.

Setting them unexecutable does break (otherwise working) functionality
in RMAIL. I'm not an RMAIL expect, but I suspect all tm* scripts in
this dir belong to the same family, at first glance.

(sorry I've been late in replying)

Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2004-10-29 01:58:50 EDT
Ok, I sent a mail to upstream about this to query their intentions.
Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2005-04-06 16:39:01 EDT
Fixed in Extras CVS, will be included in the next build.  Thanks.
Will also re-ping upstream.
Comment 5 Ville Skyttä 2005-04-07 02:46:03 EDT
Upstream replied, saying this (and other permissions problems) should be fixed
starting from the next Sumos.
