Do you literally mean the traditional permissions bits, or do you care about other permission-like metadata?

comment How do I choose a graphics card for Linux?
@Mr. Shickade — "tainted" is a technical term. See tux.org/lkml/#s1-18. Additionally, while you may not be concerned about the openness of the driver, as I mentioned above, this is important to me, and it is important to other people as well.

comment Which version of X introduced feature Y?
It may be auto-generated from the git logs. There's a ChangeLog.bz2 in /usr/share/doc/coreutils-8.10 on my Fedora system, and the top entry is from 2011-02-04. Possible also that this is a RH fork — I'll check into that later today.

comment How is the linux graphics stack organised?

comment How is the linux graphics stack organised?
Video of Xorg developer Keith Packard on the future of Linux graphics at linux.conf.au in Jan. 2011: linuxconfau.blip.tv/file/4693305 This covers both the current model and the plans for the near and medium future.

comment How to overwrite target files with mv?
Presumably mv is faster because you're on the same filesystem? What if you use cp -l to create hardlinks rather than actually moving the files?
