Hi there,
Just installed texlive on a system where the umask setting of 'manfred' 
is 077 and I usually use 'sudo ....' for adhoc stuff to be run under root.

After installation texlive permissions of all directories were 700.
Wouldn't it be a good idea to set umask to 022 (just for safety) before 
installing anything?
