Pretty sure it inherits from the parent directory if you copy, doesn't it?
So you want a PGP/GPG signature thingy? Now we need a mental health check,
because the date, time, subject, and intended recipient(s) are not part of
what is actually signed. [/sarcasm]
So if you *copy* (cp) a file, it usually inherits "context" from the
destination parent directory.
On the other hand if you *move* (mv) a file, it tends to retain its original
I have also had trouble copying a symlinked file when a deep copy of the data
was made, but the basic permissions of the new file were set to 0777, that of
the symlink, not the original file pointed to.
