Move to Permission and Attributes

I considered creating a page for extended file attributes, but decided there wasn't enough material. I added a section to chmod instead. There was already a section on chown, there is some stuff about access control lists that may be worth adding, and this material is all fairly related, I wonder if it's worthwhile to move this page to Permissions and Attributes, or better to keep it all separate. --Emiralle (talk) 05:10, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

I think renaming the article is not a bad idea at all, I'd consider also File Permissions and Attributes as a new name. The introduction and the article summary should be reworked; probably the "Changing permissions using the chmod command" section should be renamed "chmod" for consistency with the "chown" section, or vice versa the "chown" section should be renamed "Changing ownership using the chown command", or a compromise solution. -- Kynikos (talk) 12:26, 26 September 2012 (UTC)
