Redcar creates files/directories with weird permissions

Reported by mscharley | August 15th, 2010 @ 06:56 AM

Whenever I create a file or directory with Redcar, it uses umask=0000 (verified via the REPL, umask). The controlling shell's umask is 0022. This is incorrect, Redcar shouldn't be setting it's umask.

    This is definitely an issue, and is definitely happening inside Redcar. That said, it seems to be happening as a side-effect of something else. Nowhere is File.umask being called.

    I think this might actually be a JRuby bug. I'm seeing problems with strange file permissions in other situations too (like installing gems.. most of my installed gems in JRuby have the correct permissions for files, and wrong permissions for directories).
