I use perforce for my source control system. It has the notion of
checking in / out files. To accomplish this, it sets files -w/+w if it’s
checked in or not.
Rails chokes starting up when attempting to copy stuff in the public
engine folder into the engine_files folder.
If I chmod +w the files, or rm them before starting rails everything is
cool. This should probably be fixed in the engine plugin itself…
I have a rake task right now that does it for me, but what do you think
of modifying the core?
