[rb-general] [Debian] just how do you set the umask that setting it back to 022 doesn’t work?

.oO(why does Gitlab not manage to position the line numbers
correctly… had to download that and load it with a text editor
to find the place)

I can reproduce this by adding “umask 0002” to /etc/pbuilderrc
then building normally with cowbuilder.

OK, this really is unfun. I’ve added debugging to the build…


… and all of them show the expected value (0002 for dh *,
0022 in execute_after_dh_auto_clean, override_dh_auto_configure,
override_dh_auto_build and twice fn__build_zip), but the PKZIP
archives created by cmake STILL have 664 instead!

@cmake maintainers — perhaps you can shed a light on this?

The code that creates the PKZIP archives is this:


fn__build_zip() is called to create a META-INF/container.xml
and add that and the other file (ROOTFILE parameter) to a
PKZIP archive with fn__build_zip(). The ROOTFILE file comes
from the origtgz (and thus should have the correct permissions,
unless tar does not extract them right).

The built musescore3-common then has a file, for example,
/usr/share/mscore3-3.2/workspaces/Advanced.workspace, like…

… erm…

$ unzip -lvv Advanced.workspace
Archive:  Advanced.workspace
 Length   Method    Size  Cmpr    Date    Time   CRC-32   Name
--------  ------  ------- ---- ---------- ----- --------  ----
     134  Defl:N      103  23% 2020-02-07 19:04 6b2e0a94  META-INF/container.xml
  136628  Defl:N     9102  93% 2020-02-07 19:04 bfc42790  Advanced.xml
--------          -------  ---                            -------
  136762             9205  93%                            2 files

… nowhere in there does it say any Unix permissions.
Are those really stored in the PKZIP archive, or are
we seeing a bug in the comparison (diffoscope called
with umask 002 still active)?
