Default Homedir Permissions


Default homedir permissions are 755. World-readable (and listable).
Common (security) sense says that permissions that are not required
should not be granted. For example, accounts mysql and www-data should
not have access to my documents.

Some time ago I filed a bug related to this: 398793
The maintainer didn't agree and asked me to bring this up on this
list. What do you think?
The (only) disadvantage is that ~/public_html requires you too grant
permission manually.
