All tests fail due to bad file permissions #4375
Hi scipy developers,
I noticed that the file permissions have changed in the 0.14.1 tarball release. Regular users no longer have read permission for many of the files, which means that when I build scipy from source and install it myself, by default some of the files are unreadable without elevating my privledges. For instance, after a fresh scipy install, every single one of the tests fail with a warning similar to:
Compare the file permissions in the source tarball of version 0.14.1 versus 0.14.0 (here I am showing one of the aforementioned test files):
Was this change to the file permissions intentional? If so, then is it documented somewhere? It seems like a bug to me since I have to manually change the file permissions when I build scipy.
Well, I never heard anything on this issue from Pauli (@pv), but I see that he released version 0.15.0 yesterday and it has the correct file permissions.
As far as I am concerned, this issue can be closed.
