Comment 2 Jan Chaloupka 2014-05-29 07:27:13 EDT
In man.spec, there is 

install -m755 %{SOURCE2} $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/etc/cron.daily/makewhatis.cron

where -m755 has to be change into -m700.

However, man package is not on the approved component list.
Comment 3 Jan Chaloupka 2015-01-07 09:18:14 EST
As this is only one line fix in spec file, proposing for fast.
