The validate permissions for the "WorkingDir"

5 directories or files have insufficient permissions. Insufficient permissions could prevent Foswiki or the web server from accessing or updating the files. 
/me/fw/beta/Foswiki-1.2.0_Beta_1/working/logs/README not writable
/me/fw/beta/Foswiki-1.2.0_Beta_1/working/README not writable
/me/fw/beta/Foswiki-1.2.0_Beta_1/working/registration_approvals/README not writable
/me/fw/beta/Foswiki-1.2.0_Beta_1/working/tmp/README not writable
/me/fw/beta/Foswiki-1.2.0_Beta_1/working/work_areas/README not writable 

The default permissions (after the untar) is 444.

The error messages are "cosmetic" only, (low priority) but would be nice either:
  • to set default permissions on the README files to 644
  • or exclude from the checks the README files

The configure shouldn't output any error message what are avoidable. (nor harmless messages too).
