Description Andy Lutomirski 2016-01-08 01:09:46 UTC
Preventing the world from reading ssh-agent and ssh-keysign serves no purpose and is annoying to users playing with unprivileged stateless use of /usr.  Please consider changing the modes to 2555.

Comment 1 Jakub Jelen 2016-01-08 12:29:51 UTC
Hello,
thank you for bringing this issue into the discussion.

 * ssh-keysign there should be no drawback in setting 2555 permissions
 * ssh-agent does not need SGID bit [1] so changing to 0755 as upstream does during install

It will be in the next update for Fedora 23
