 > Kathy and I have confirmed that file mode is lost inside dmg2mar during
 the 7z extraction step. Unless there is a 7z option to preserve this, it
 is probably a bug in 7z. In the short run, maybe we can:
 > 1. use the mar tool to extract each complete mar file
 > 2. manually fix file and dir modes to match those used inside the dmg
 > 3. use the mar tool to re-create the mar
 > 4. push the fixed mar files to dist.tpo

 I am not sure about that. At least I won't have time for that tomorrow.
 Not sure about Monday. boklm or anybody else: if you feel this is
 worthwhile, go ahead. Otherwise I'd say this is a nasty alpha bug which
 one can avoid by downloading a fresh new .dmg. Or following the advice on
 the blog which links to comment:5.
