ReviewGuidelines say:
MUST: Permissions on files must be set properly. Executables should be set 
with executable permissions, for example.

I just noticed that there are some files with permissions 0444 on my fc5 
system installed, for example manpages:

-r--r--r-- 1 root root  24410 15. Feb 2006  cdrecord.1.gz
-r--r--r-- 1 root root   1229 11. Feb 2006  dos2unix.1.gz
-r--r--r-- 1 root root   1790 11. Feb 2006  hesinfo.1.gz

Are 0444 proper permission bits for manpages / non-executable files?
