1.230.1.  RHBA-2009:0294: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2009:0294
Updated unix2dos2 packages that resolve a bug are now available.
The unix2dos utility converts UNIX text files to DOS or MAC format.
This updated package provides a fix for the following bug:
  • when unix2dos created a new file as the output of its conversion (when run with the -n option), the new file would always have its permission mode set as 600, regardless of the permission mode of the original file. Unix2dos now sets the permission mode for the new file to be the same as the mode of the old file, filtered through the user's umask.
Users of unix2dos should upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
