Hi folks,

getting back to the topic of adding POSIX file permission support to jdk.zipfs... I think as we are now in the early stages of JDK13, it's a good point in time to get some (hopefully final) activity on that one.

In the last review discussions you were asking me to provide some write-up of the proposal.
Therefore I updated the CSR. It should now be a valid document for discussing the whole proposal, comprising the problem to solve, the proposed solution and its specification as well as addressing some concerns.

And to get it clear: This item is only about jdk.zipfs. It is really independent of potential enhancements for java.util.zip or the jartool. So, I gently ask you to review the CSR. 

As for the implementation: I've worked on it together with Volker and will post an update soon.

Thanks and Best regards
