Package: pgbackrest
Version: 1.12-1

Dear Maintainer,

# ls -lad /var/lib/pgbackrest/
drwxr-xr-x 2 postgres postgres 4096 Dec 15  2016 /var/lib/pgbackrest/

The permissions are 755. As the user guide points out:


they should most definitely be 750, because the directory will contain database backups.
