Hello all,

sorry, wall of text incoming.

If recipes install directories with `install -d path/to/dir`, how is the default mode determined? What can cause it suddenly (that is, without updating metalayers or similar) to change from 755 to 700?
when I did this to myself recently, I had changed the shells default
umask value to 077 which caused exactly what you are listing. I would
check to see if the users or system wide umask was changed recently by
an update.
