Bug#271350: apt: please set permissions of Packages/Release files

Package: apt
Version: 0.5.27
Severity: wishlist

the files `apt-get update` downloads are stored with a mode
according to the umask of the caller. All my root accounts have 077,
which causes them to be 600 and thus unreadable by normal users.
I don't see a point at having these file be anything but 644 or even
664. Could you please have apt-get set the permissions explicitly
after downloading the files?
