Dirk, I've had the exaxt same situation months ago (since then
R-devel was "1.4.0 to be") and reacted the same way as you, just
to R-core instead of R-devel back then ....
My solution was to manually "rcs -U" all the relevant files, and
from then on, rcs kept them rw-r--r-- (aka 644) as desired.
I haven't seen a reason why I should use RCS locks when I'm the
only one accessing these files.
Dirk> Other than that, R CMD check is a very impressive
(yes, and because of that and later submission to CRAN
I agree that "--no-perms" is not a solution to me neither).
