Copy link

Heya, I'm transferring files to the gallery using the files_to_copy setting, and some of them are read-only (as in, e.g., chmod 444). All goes well at the first run of sigal to build the gallery, but subsequent ones fail with:

Removing the file does work (because the dir containing them is writable), but I'm not sure you'd want to systematically try to remove existing destination files before copying them over. Not sure what would be a better fix either though.

To avoid removing all files or the cost of checking their permissions, I guess we could catch the PermissionError and do something better only in this case.

@zacchiro - Fixed by removing the file when the error happens before copying again.
