Capistrano after_update_code Questions

Hi,

When doing a capistrano deploy, just before the symlink task occurs I’d like to change the permissions on the new release that capistrano pulls out of my repository. I suppose one way of doing this would be to write a cusom task that determine which of the releases in the relases directory is the most current, then change permissions. However, I’m wondering if there is an easier way. Are there any variables that contain the name–timestamp–that capistrano assigns to this most recent release of my code?

Thanks,
Steven

Try the variable "current_release".
See http://turnipspatch.com/articles/capistrano-implied-attributes for
reference

desc "After Update Task"
task :after_update_code do
  run <<-CMD
    chmod TOWHATEVER #{release_path}
  CMD
end

This would do.
