Re: on the use of chmod/chown in maintainer scripts
Thanks for bringing up this issue again. Admittedly, there hasn't been much
progress since it was discussed last year.
Hopefully, the discussion has focused on a solution to completely avoid the
problem during upgrades.
For the general issue, the only progress I made was in the form of #608623,
but I haven't spent any time trying to implement lchmod in the kernel.
