#2169 closed enhancement (fixed)

make umask on master configurable

Reported by: mverwijs Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.8.+
Version: 0.8.5 Keywords: simple, sprint


In my setup, the master creates an APT and YUM repository using MasterShellCommands?. These commands result in files and folders that are inaccessable to any other user due to Twistd's restrictive settings.

I've modded lib/python2.6/site-packages/Twisted-11.1.0-py2.6-linux-x86_64.egg/twisted/scripts/ to have a less restrictive umask, as I was unable to find any other way to do this.

It would be useful if the method used for Slaves to set the umask was applied to the Master as well.
