Package: type1inst
Version: 0.6.1-4
Severity: minor

Though it doesn't affect normal use, I'm a little nervous about the
creation of root-owned files with execute permissions.  It seems to me
these files should have 644 rather than 755 permissions.

If somehow a malicious user could overwrite these files with a script,we
could have a potential security problem here.

I'd suggest changing the "system" commands that start out "chmod 755
..." to "chmod 644 ..." instead.  Is there any reason for having execute
permission on these files?  I can't see one.

The type1inst package has been removed from Debian testing, unstable and
experimental, so I am now closing the bugs that were still opened
against it.

For more information about this package's removal, read
http://bugs.debian.org/158476 . That bug might give the reasons why
this package was removed, and suggestions of possible replacements.

Don't hesitate to reply to this mail if you have any question.

Thank you for your contribution to Debian.
