I've tried making some PDF files in the import directory read-only and
the files don't change when importing/building. The files in the
archives/building/index folders are of course not read-only because they
have been copied.

Why do you need the files to be read-only? This attribute won't be
preserved when they are accessed through a web-browser. Perhaps if you
explain what you're trying to do we'll be able to understand your
problem better.

Yes, this is because you're using UnknownPlug. Is PDFPlug not suitable
for this collection?
