/etc/localtime isn't world readable



Hi,

I wonder why /etc/localtime isn't world readable in the Fedora Core distribution. Let say you put your hardware clock in UTC and your computer is set to whatever timezone. Then by default, when you log as a user gnome/kde clock applet display time as UTC because /etc/localtime isn't readable. Is tbere a security issue about this file being world readable.
