Hi Adam

on my system I promoted myself to be the owner of all
the sub-hierarchies in /usr/local/texlive/
(i.e 2013/ and texmf-local/)
rather than root. 

I found out that this was a satisfactory

I guess then the alert issued by TLU in case of umask 0022
(which is also my case) would not be necessary?
