Hi Manfred,

    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?

It's doing what you told it to do.  I don't think it's best not to guess
at the intended permissions.  I seem to recall that in some prior years
we did set umask and there were complaints about that ...
