Description

With qgis 2.1 (master, Valmiera) to create a project and get it done .qgs file read-only (right-click on the file Properties -> Permissions -> Access = Read-Only).
Opened the work I still change the project and save it. When I click save and it saves the project. Then check out. Qgs file it is already reading and writing (right-click on the file Properties -> Permissions -> Access = Read & Write).
This is on Debian Wheezy and Ubuntu 12.04.
The stable qgis 2.0 Dufor everything works fine.
Whether this will be on a 2.2 Valmiera?

Readonly projects are not supported. So you can always change the project and save it somewhere else. If you save to the same file the original file gets renamed to yourfile.qgs~ and an new file is created. You could make the directory readonly so that creating new files in that directory doesn't work.

on second thought "overwriting" a readonly file doesn't make sense as you probably made it readonly just to prevent that.
