[HTCondor-users] umask of scratch spaces in 8.0


We're currently running 7.8 on our Linux based campus grid, and I'm investigating shifting up to 8.0. However, a 'feature' that was added in 7.9.2 would cause us grief, namely that the permissions have been tightened to 0700. I realise and accept why this has been done, but it breaks a web-based job monitoring tool of ours, which relies on at least group permissions being set to allow this. Looking at ticket https://htcondor-wiki.cs.wisc.edu/index.cgi/tktview?tn=4016,56 it is apparent that we're not the only people to get caught out by this, and I like the solution there, but that only seems to make it into the current testing 8.1 stream. Are there any plans to backport this into the 8.0 stream, or do we have to wait for 8.2 to be released before upgrading from 7.8?

Best regards,
