#30899 new defect

coreutils' tools don't handle ACL

Reported by: Damien@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.0.1
Keywords: acl Cc: kurthindenburg (Kurt Hindenburg)
Port: coreutils

Description

MacOS uses ACL for setting permissions on files. Therefore, tools like /bin/chmod and /bin/ls do handle Access Control Lists via some switches.

However, the tools provided by MacPorts' coreutils don't support ACL. That is extremely problematic because it prevents proper files management and broke scripts.

MacPorts's coreutils tools must support ACL.

Replying to Damien@…:

MacPorts's coreutils tools must support ACL.

How can we accomplish this? Can this be enabled simply with a configuration switch?

No, you'd have to add this support to coreutils versions of these tools.

I would be more in favor of not installing any bins that don't support ACL
