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