appropriate for doc files - maybe 644, or for executables 755?
Perhaps in
future releases this can be adjusted so I don't have tp go in and
change the permissions.  (It's not a big issue that the files don't back

slows down backups.)  If anybody cares, the backup program is CrashPlan.

the files are 644 on my system,
same on the tar file

-rw-r--r-- vzell/None    17625 2016-06-29 13:34
-rw-r--r-- vzell/None    20185 2016-06-29 13:34

True, those files have reasonable permissions, but look in the
e.g., usr/share/doc/xfig/html.  The files there are mostly rwx------ in
the tar
file (I just looked at xfig-3.2.5.c-3.tar.xz, downloaded today).

you are right

$ tar -tvf xfig-3.2.5c-3.tar.xz |grep html |head
