@vindex vc-mistrust-permissions
You can specify the criterion for whether to trust the file
permissions by setting the variable @code{vc-mistrust-permissions}.
Its value can be @code{t} (always mistrust the file permissions and
check the master file), @code{nil} (always trust the file
permissions), or a function of one argument which makes the decision.
The argument is the directory name of the @file{RCS} subdirectory. A
non-@code{nil} value from the function says to mistrust the file
permissions. If you find that the file permissions of work files are
changed erroneously, set @code{vc-mistrust-permissions} to @code{t}.
Then VC always checks the master file to determine the file's status.
VC determines the version control state of files under SCCS much as
with RCS@. It does not consider SCCS version headers, though. Thus,
the variable @code{vc-mistrust-permissions} affects SCCS use, but
@code{vc-consult-headers} does not.
the variable @code{vc-consult-headers} does not affect SCCS use.
