[erlang-questions] Maybe potential incompatibility of file_info record
Thu Jun 7 07:39:06 CEST 2018
After using OTP 21-rc2 some days, I encountered a situation
where rebar3/relx-generated release did not start.
The (maybe-indirect) cause is in erlware_commons and the issue
has been filed:
ec_file:copy fails for not owned source file with OTP 21-rc2
In the module, file_info is read and written (copied) after file:copy.
If source file is owned by root, non-root user can not write the file_info
It seems that some fields are added to file_info record between 20 and 21-rc2,
might it be nice if it is stated in OTP release's README as potential
