**Ticket moved to GitHub**: "pulp/pulpcore/1820":https://github.com/pulp/pulpcore/issues/1820 ---- You get a permission denied error if you set up pulp + S3 according to our docs. This warning somewhat explains the problem: ~~~ The default behavior of S3Boto3Storage is insecure and will change in django-storages 2.0. By default files and new buckets are saved with an ACL of 'public-read' (globally publicly readable). Version 2.0 will default to using the bucket's ACL. To opt into the new behavior set AWS_DEFAULT_ACL = None, otherwise to silence this warning explicitly set AWS_DEFAULT_ACL. ~~~ More info https://github.com/jschneier/django-storages/issues/381 The temporary fix is to set `AWS_DEFAULT_ACL` to 'None' in our settings. Not sure if we should update our docs since this is a temporary problem that should be resolved in django-storages 2.0.
