Like the bug report says, it is already fixed in trunk and will be fixed
in the next release (after 1.8.1).  The fix may not be what you expect,
though.  The next release will never overwrite read-only files with
<copy> unless you explicitly set a force attribute to make it do so.

For Ant 1.8.0 and 1.8.1 there is a workaround - make <copy> use the
filtering mode (i.e. add a filterset that doesn't change your files at
all) and it will overwrite read-only files just like 1.7.1 did.  This
workaround won't work anymore with the next release.
