The standard user:group are already set in cswproto, as are the  
for directories:

I could imagine setting a default for files. Or changing the umask to  
automatically on GAR invocation. BTW, we still a way of easily tweaking
the prototype as PROTOTYPE_FILTERs are still too complex.

Something like this could be useful:

PROTOTYPE_FILES_mytweaks = $(bindir)/.*\.conf
PROTOTYPE_PERMS_mytweaks = 0644
PROTOTYPE_CLASS_mytweaks = cswconffile


Here, PROTOTYPE_MODIFIERS is a list of modifiers to apply where for each
modifier one or more fields can be changed.

Best regards
