Description Kirill Sorokin 2006-12-05 10:59:47 UTC
An unexpected use-case was described - installation goes on a linux machine,
while the product will be used from windows via samba, thus removing
windows-related files would hurt the user experience.

The files permissions, should be the same as in the original product zip file,
thus they should be read from the created metadata, instead of the engine trying
to guess which is correct.

Changing to P2 defect because it seriously affects ability to use NB on unixes
to generate an NB platform application for windows - it is impossible.

Comment 4 Jesse Glick 2007-06-07 19:38:58 UTC
In particular, files in the harness/ cluster must NOT be removed, as they are
destined for use in applications built by the user which must be cross-platform.
Comment 5 Kirill Sorokin 2007-06-14 09:14:45 UTC
I've disabled removing files irrelevant to the current platform in all netbeans components. The issue is not yet
completely closed as we need to resolve the files permissions part of it. So far the current behavior harmless, but not
exactly "proper".
Comment 6 Kirill Sorokin 2007-07-09 15:44:19 UTC
Since Dima has implemented the native chmod call, we can safely restore the original files permissions without much
worrying about performance.
