 A year or two ago, you helpfully implemented a suggestion of mine (emailed
 to dkocher at cyberduck.io on Thu, Jun 12, 2014 at 6:08 PM, subject
 "s3.amazonaws.com and permission column") of showing AWS permissions in
 the permissions column, but since 5.1 or so, this seems to have stopped
 working; the permissions column has gone back to just showing "--". This
 may be related to another issue I've been newly seeing (in a file's info
 dialog, changes to permission are not immediately shown without refresh +
 returning to that file's info dialog), but I'll of course enter a separate
 ticket for that one.

 For reference (I don't recall if I created a tracker account and entered
 it as a ticket, though I see in my email David Kocher replied suggested I
 do so), this was the original email back then:

 > At
 you stated that
 > "Because the ACL is a list of grantees with a list of permissions it is
 difficult to visualize in a single table cell. I understand that you
 suggest just to display the permissions of the
 "http://acs.amazonaws.com/groups/global/AllUsers" (anonymous) group. We
 would need to introduce a new column in the browser for this which I will
 consider for a future release."
 > You wouldn't necessarily need a new column, and you wouldn't have to
 show just the permissions for the anonymous group. Since the permission
 column isn't currently being used to display anything else while connected
 to s3, then for Amazon s3 connection cases alone, each cell in the
 Permission column could display full permission information for that row's
 file, as a simple comma-delimited or semicolon-delimited string, e.g.
 "Everyone:READ; exampleuser:FULL_CONTR..." Sure, depending on the number
 of grantees, that may seem a bit long for one table cell, but the user
 could always just drag the column boundary to widen the column until
 there's no ellipsis and see the whole grantee list.
 > Thanks.
