Description Stef Walter 2013-03-06 11:37:32 UTC
Because the 'p11-kit extract' and 'p11-kit extract-trust' commands are often called in an automated fashion, we should be able to make their output directories chmod -w and thus somewhat read-only.

This could be an additional option to 'p11-kit extract' and packagers or system builders would use that option in their customized 'p11-kit extract-trust' scripts.

    extract: Make extracted output directories read-only
    This is not a security feature or anything like that, but a hint
    that the files are managed by the extract tool and should not be
    modified manually.
