Coda File System

Disconnected startup (kind of still is Re: Hoarding files with spaces in the name)

To be honest, I just got around to testing out hoarding and how it would
work when starting up disconnected.  I got the broken link to the realm
in the /coda directory as I had read about previously, so I went to
download the latest version of coda-client from CVS.  As I went to build
it using dpkg-buildpackage under Debian, it wouldn't build, telling me
that dpkg-buildpackage: line 175: debian/rules: permission denied or
something like that.  I was able to properly build the amanda packages,
so I looked at the two debian directories under both projects working
directories.  The debian/rules file in coda is not executable coming out
of CVS.  The moment I changed it to be executable, dpkg-buildpackage
worked fine.
