Please describe the problem.

Initially generated an annex while having a restrictive umask 077. Then cloned that repository to another host for public consumption so directory had proper/good permissions set allowing group to access. And everything is accessible but not the load which I 'annex get'ed. Key directories were readable but not the content. I guess there is somewhere 'preserve permissions' setting for rsync/scp which imho shouldn't be there and content should inherit local/environment settings

What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?


I'm going to close this. Mostly because rsync is no longer used for ssh transfers and so file perms are not preserved, unless git-annex is talking to a very old git-annex-shell. Also because not enough information is known about the repo setup back then. done --Joey
