We would like to hear the communities thoughts on being able to configure the permissions log files are created with. We don't want to rely on UMASK because we have managed services who's process should generate logs with a 644 yet deployed applications by users should default to a 640 because the logs may contain sensitive information.
We will make the modification and set this in the properties file. Now we are looking to see what the community position would be on accepting such a patch, we don't want to be patching our own distribution indefinitely.
I searched all the JIRAs and was not able to find any matching requirements recently. All I could find was something dated in 2006: https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=40407
