The problem here seems to be that:

a) There is a group of people.
b) For general Unix work everybody in the group uses a umask of 007
c) This means that everyone in the group has read AND WRITE access to everybody
else's files
d) In kdevelop, the umask is not respected; files are created with mode 755
i.e. other members do not have write access to created files (like

IMO this appears to be a (minor) problem in kdevelop, in that files should be
created mode 666 from kdevelop and the OS should apply umask.

Using version control software (CVS/RCS) to get round the problem, might not be
convenient due to the way they work.
