#5711: Change default ACL to inherit
    Reporter:  Decker Jesse  |      Owner:  dkocher
        Type:  enhancement   |     Status:  new
    Priority:  normal        |  Milestone:
   Component:  s3            |    Version:  Nightly Build
    Severity:  minor         |   Keywords:  acl, permissions, default
Architecture:  Intel         |   Platform:  Mac OS X 10.6
 According to the
 [http://trac.cyberduck.ch/wiki/help/en/howto/s3#DefaultACLs Default ACLs
 in Cyberducks FAQ], if you have a default ACL specified in preferences, it
 will be applied to all uploaded files.  However, if you turn this feature
 '''OFF''', aka. uncheck the box "Change Permissions" under Preferenes >>
 Transfers tab >> Permissions tab >> Uploads section >> Change Permissions,
 the ACL that is applied is [Owner: FULL_CONTROL] only.

 Private CloudFront distributions require special access, including a
 custom ACL.  I would argue the better way would be to have the default be
 to apply an inherited ACL when the box is unchecked.  This would eliminate
 the need to add a new user to the affected files after every upload.

 Additionally, the functionality of forcing the upload to have [Owner:
 FULL_CONTROL] only would still be intact by enabling that checkbox and
 customizing the permissions.

 On a side note, we use your software every day at work -- great stuff!
 Thank you so much!
