Access permissions of files in source tarball too strict

Reported by: virutass Owned by: warner
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.3.0
Component: packaging Version: 0.9.0
Keywords: Cc: zooko
Launchpad Bug:


$ tar tvzf allmydata-tahoe-1.0.0.tar.gz drwx------ buildslave/buildslave ..

Wouldn't it be better to use 0644 and 0755 for files and directories?

yeah, definitely. Something must be wrong in the script that we use to make tarballs. Zooko, are you familiar with that script?

  • Owner changed from zooko to warner

ah, this is probably because the buildslave that's generating the tarballs has a umask that's too strict.. let me see if I can fix that.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

yup, that was it. Things should be fixed now. The most recent release (1.2.0) tarball hasn't been changed, but the upcoming (1.3.0) release should be a+rx, and the nightly/continuous tarballs look good now.
