Subject: Retain permissions and ownership when saving CPAN configuration
(Version 1.92_60 and earlier) Currently the permissions and ownership are changed to the defaults (umask, default group) when committing the CPAN configuration to disk. I think as much as possible should be preserved. $ ls -al ~/.cpan/CPAN/MyConfig.pm -rw-rw-r-- 1 eserte cpansand 2102 29 Mär 15:24 /home/e/eserte/.cpan/CPAN/MyConfig.pm $ cpan
