Hey all-

I'm not embarrassed to say that I love the unicorn, no matter how
weird that sounds.  When I first read the README, my hopes soared
because the philosophy was exactly in line with how I'd imagined a
ruby application server should behave.  And so far I have been pleased
with our initial results on a portion of traffic in production.

I found some permissions issues with the 0.93.0 gem release.  In
short, the installed permissions are excessively strict and incorrect.
 The following files have the mode 700 rather than the correct 755

This prevents unicorn from being started by a non-super user, as many
people are wont to do.  There are also a smattering of document files
and the gemspec with incorrect permissions but this it less of an

Thanks again and I've subscribed to the mailing list.
