Kinda surprised this didn't generate some immediate discussion...  I
would also think that if you had a desire to change defaults you'd also
have a libvirt.spec.in adjustment...

Actually no it doesn't - the spec file is already marking
/var/lib/libvirt/images as 0711.

Still 0755 or umask(022) seem to be fairly prevalent setting and having
the <mode> for the XML to be able to override a default certainly gives
credence to arguments in either direction whether or not to change the

It's been a long while since I considered system/directory/file security
things, but I have this faint recollection of some strange issue when
not having world or group "executable" as a default.

The fact that RPM spec ships with 0711 show that it works ok. So I
think this change is reasonable.

Same here.  I'm not sure, but I think even SELinux policy defaulted to
that.  Anyway, ACK to this one, I'll push this in a while.

While we're on this, is there some global config for the group in all
these permissions?  I would love to add a user to one group and make all
libvirt-related readable for that user with that one simple addition.
