Hi, I am using ST to interface with our Kiln-hosted Mercurial repository. I am on windows 7. Frequently if I revert a file ('Discard File') in ST, the is reverted correctly but with all the wrong permissions. In contrast, if I 'revert file' from Tortoise HG right-click, it reverts the file, but leaves the permissions intact. This causes problems with the files are on an IIS server and the app pool user requires certain permissions to read the file.
Has anyone else observed this behavior, and is it a bug? It seems like one to me, but maybe there is more to it.
I don't think Mercurial stores the file permissions in the commit, so I'm not sure how Tortoise HG is preserving those permissions. I changed the permissions on a file and then used both SourceTree and the command line to revert the file, both times the permissions were reset.
