Hi all,

I'm using notmuch 0.26-1+b2 out of Debian unstable.
The files created inside .notmuch/xapian by notmuch are group and world
readable.  Is this on purpose? This seems quite suboptimal, especially
if one is using the recently introduced cleartext indexing feature..

Any feedback appreciated,
