Is there a method to import linux files with typical unix permission bits and ACLs into a new RTC project repository? The first cut made importing our source tree has caused all our executable scripts to loose the execute settings.

We are using RTC

Hi Paul.

Are you using the RTC SVN dump file importer? It should preserve the "svn:executable" property on any file in your SVN repository that has it. You can verify that it's preserved by looking at the file's Jazz Source Control properties in the RTC Eclipse client - the "Executable" property should be "true". When you subsequently load that file from your RTC repository, the loader will set the "user" executable bit.

RTC (including the SVN importer) does not preserve any other Unix-style permissions. See this RTC enhancement request for details:
