Bug#92744: Section 10.1.2., better example

Package: debian-policy
Severity: wishlist

In my opinion, the example for creating a directory under /usr/local is
slightly misleading.  As the default umask for root is 022, plain mkdir
will result in a directory which is not group-writable.  I think the
example should state 'mkdir -m2775 -p' instead.

I know the suggested permissions are explicitly stated a bit later, but
I think copy-pasting an example is something one does more often than
thinking things through.  No offense.  At least python{,2}-base seems to
suffer from this.
