Plugin Source File Permissions?

I am experimenting with writing a LR Classic plugin on macOS. I have been able to successfully install the samples, now I am going to install my simple plugin code.  Whenever I do, I get a message like this

 

Could not read the metadata spec from this plug-in.
No script by the name m.lua

My code is sitting in a source directory under my user.  When I  move the entire .lrdevplugin folder to the Classic plugins folder /Users/paul/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/Plugins, the plugin loads.  This looks like a permission problem to me.  What permissions does Classic need for the files as well as the intervening folders?  Thanks!

"No script by the name m.lua"

 

There's a years-old bug where LR sometimes doesn't recognize the existence of files referenced Info.lua until you restart LR. So as a first step, try restarting LR.

 

If that doesn't help, make sure LR has been granted Full Disk Access (not Files And Folders) permission:

@johnrellis it looks like a simple restart of LR did the trick.  Thank you!
