  of course, now that i actually try it on my machine, i find
that it doesn't seem to work for me.  from the debug output it
looks as if cfagent tries to set the umask, but then goes ahead
and ignores it:

DoEditFile(/tmp/foo)
IgnoredOrExcluded(/tmp/foo)
GetLock(editfile,_tmp_foo,time=1043902665), ExpireAfter=120, IfElapsed=1
GetLastLock()
PutLock(last.cfagent_conf.100.clea.editfile._tmp_foo)
Unable to delete lock
[last.cfagent_conf.100.clea.editfile._tmp_foo]: DB_NOTFOUND: No matching
key/data pair found
CheckOldLock(lock.cfagent_conf.clea.editfile._tmp_foo)
Unable to find lock data lock.cfagent_conf.clea.editfile._tmp_foo
SetLock(lock.cfagent_conf.clea.editfile._tmp_foo)
PutLock(lock.cfagent_conf.clea.editfile._tmp_foo)
Unable to delete lock
[lock.cfagent_conf.clea.editfile._tmp_foo]: DB_NOTFOUND: No matching
key/data pair found
(Setting umask to 77)
cfengine:clea: Creating file /tmp/foo, mode 644
Begin editing /tmp/foo
Edit action: AutoCreate
Edit action: Umask
Edit action: AppendIfNoSuchLine
Appending [foo]
End editing /tmp/foo

/tmp/foo gets created, but mode 0644.  in CheckEditSwitches()
in src/edittools.c, it looks like the mode is hardcoded to
0644 when the file is created.  unfortunately, i'm not enough
of a c programmer to try fixing it...  anyone else?  this is
both in cfengine 2.0.4 and cfengine 2.0.5pre2.
