permission problem on sourceware

No, it's fine. If you say so, I'll upload it as is. Righht now I
can't, due to a strange permission problem on sourceware.
I also experienced just a release-2 permission problem.
mkdir newdir and cp -r . ~/release-2/mypackage/newdir created the newdir
without g-w (group-writable) and the owner was changed to cyguser.
So I couldn't add files to a new dir.
But finally I managed to install -d -m0775 newdir and was able to copy
my new files to this new subdir.
So beware of mkdir and cp, use install instead.
I didn't try scp and rsync directly to release-2, as I consider this too
dangerous for me.
