Package: apt Version: 0.5.27 Severity: wishlist the files `apt-get update` downloads are stored with a mode according to the umask of the caller. All my root accounts have 077, which causes them to be 600 and thus unreadable by normal users. I don't see a point at having these file be anything but 644 or even 664. Could you please have apt-get set the permissions explicitly after downloading the files?
