  Subject: pkg files mode problems

  Package: dpkg

When I use dpkg as root for product installation, database files are
written with -rw------- mode (because I have an umask of 077 for root).
The problem is that when I want to use dpkg -l as an ordinary user to see
informations about a package, there is an error.

0-bach$ dpkg -l
dpkg: failed to open package info file `/var/lib/dpkg/status' for reading:
Permission denied

  I suggest that the database files which can be made public be written
with correct modes, whatever the umask is.

  I am using Debian 1.3.1, kernel version 2.0.27 and libc libc.so.5.4.33.

Best Regards
