  229_4ubuntu17 removes group write permissions from /var/log

Status in systemd package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Steps to reproduce (time senstive, once lxd image is updated with
  4ubuntu17, I expect this won't work)

  lxc launch ubuntu:x test
  lxc exec test -- ls -ld /var/log  # shows 775 perms
  lxc exec test -- apt update
  lxc exec test -- apt-cache policy systemd
  lxc exec test -- apt install systemd
  lxc exec test -- ls -ld /var/log  # shows 755 permissions

  straceing the apt install shows no chmod calls to /var/log (only
  /var/log/apt.log, as you'd expect)

  This means syslog cannot write new files in /var/log, and had broken
  some production logging for us as a result.
