[Bug 953501] Re: /var/run/epoptes/epoptes.socket permissions are wrong


In the past I tried adding an umask() call to epoptesd.py:
        guiService = internet.UNIXServer(
            "%s/epoptes.socket" % config.system['DIR'],

There seems to be a twisted bug somewhere though and this doesn't work as expected.
And, seeing that for example ~/.config is not world-readable while the other dirs inside it are, I thought it's OK, not worth the trouble to hunt down a twisted bug for it.
Patches are welcome though, if someone really needs it.

Bug description:
  /var/run/epoptes/epoptes.socket is root:epoptes 666 by default, where
  I'd have expected root:epoptes 660 instead.

  This isn't a big concern because /var/run/epoptes itself is 770 but
  it'd still be a good idea to fix the permission there too just to be
