After installing packages the group write bit is on (775 resp. 664)

    I installed packages from zoss-appdev and noticed that permissions of installed files are 775 resp. 664 which is bad. Umask setting is 0022.

    Example of an installation command

    onda install --channel https://conda.anaconda.org/zoss-appdev which

    Could this be an error on my side or do you have the same permissions on your side?

    Hello Manfred,

    It's not your mistake, but rather the way conda extracts packages. Starting with this update back in 2016, conda explicitly enables the group-write bit:

    https://github.com/conda/conda-build/pull/1437

    For me, it looks a bit weird as well, especially for personal conda installations.
