[perl #121612] perltest lib/file/copy not correct;
Message ID:

FWIW, in a "meta" type way, this could be thought of as related to:

#116451: File::Copy::syscopy doesn't preserve attrs as intended on Linux

Meaning, that if 116451 was fixed by using code from coreutils "cp" program, it would *probably* (can't say with 100% certainty) fix this bug as well.

In this bug, a directory-default ACL is overriding local file permissions.  In 116451, the file-copy for linux is least likely correctly copy the file's meta information (apparently other implementations use the equivalent of 'cp'...
