BuildContrib Installer .pl Files

If I try to install BuildContrib with ../configure, I get the following Error:
Failed to move/copy file '/tmp/Nm6m4tNylI/build.pl' to /path/to/our/wiki/rootfolder/build.pl: Permission denied
Failed to move/copy file '/tmp/Nm6m4tNylI/create_new_extension.pl' to /path/to/our/wiki/rootfolder/create_new_extension.pl: Permission denied

Of course, this won't work... Shouldn't those files go to the tools or bin folder?


I'm not sure that BuildContrib is supposed to be installed this way. It's almost always used as part of a SVN checkout. These files indeed are supposed to exist in the Foswiki root directory. These are used for creating new extensions in an SVN checkout, and building the complete Foswiki release. We might be able to relocate them into tools (definitely not bin as they are not web server scripts). But these are developer tools, and are not normally used on a production environment. (It appears that the build.pl script is installed into tools and root both - probably for convenience of building a release.)
