Thanks.

OK - sounds like you're the right person to ask a question
that has been nagging me.

Is there a proper way to get the execute bit set in the git tree
on patches that contain scripts? I think patches
produced by git have something that sets the file permissions?
Is this something that can (or should) be hand-added to
a non-git patch? (I use quilt).

I put that blurb in the patch description about doing a
'chmod a+x', but that doesn't seem reliable.
