Description mitr 1999-04-19 14:39:39 EDT
[ Sorry for assigning this report to no aboot. I've made one
list and don't want to pay my phone bill for sending
separate reports. And the Bugzilla won't let me assign the
report to no package.]
I'd be grateful someone had enough time to change
permissions of the files listed below.
The changes from -r--r--r-- to -rw-r--r-- are not so
important - the only thing it should matter is that for
example while upgrading the system, the rpm process would be
accounted as 'user root privilegies'.
The most important are probably the changes to lrwxrwxrwx,
as links will always have this permission status and so even
when not changing anything, the user sees /usr/tmp (for
example) as modified when he/she invokes rpm -Va.
Thanks a lot. (And trow this away if you think it's not
important.)

Comment 1 Cristian Gafton 1999-07-28 03:19:59 EDT
Most of the changes (ignoring the rw-r-r changes) were implemented as
part of 6.0. We could have missed some...

thanks
