Accepting incoming change sets modifies files permissions

The original file permission is  -rw-r--r-- 1 on local machine. However, when accepting incoming change sets, the file permission will be changed to -rw-------- 1, which will block application server accessing the file. 

So I'm wondering where do I configure RTC so that it keeps the original file permission.

We are using RTC 3 plugin in eclipse on suse Linux.

What's "umask"? It should be 022 in most cases.

Basically RTC does not preserve file/directory permissions. The result could depend on the profile of the users who run the operation. See the discussions in this post:

The enhancement request has more discussions but was rejected:

Goodness, I am appalled this was rejected!

At least it could have stayed in the backlog, there were enough customers asking for it.
Given that RTC implements a broken model, I really don't understand this rationale. Honestly, the discussion around this item from the Jazz team was very poor, was it a case of being too hard?
