Description Mike Gilbert gentoo-dev 2014-09-25 16:13:32 UTC
It would be nice if portage would compare modes (permissions) when merging config-protected files. There are cases where the file mode is significant.

For example, files in /etc/grub.d are only evaluated by grub-mkconfig if the execute bit is set.

Note that bug 396153 suggests a solution for managing local permissions for *all* files, even those not protected by CONFIG_PROTECT.
