Hello fellow developers,

with today's pam upload, the default umask for users whose primary
group is a private user group (like group "martin" for user "martin")
is now automatically changed from the "022" default to "002". This
means that files are now created as being group-writable. 

This does not really change any effective permissions in default
setups, but makes it easier to share files between trusted user
accounts, i. e. if you put your spouse, kids, etc. into your private
user group.

Please let me know if this causes any unexpected regression or

https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/umask-to-0002 is the
associated blueprint.
