Dear Maintainer,

i figure out that poedit .mo (auto)compiled files get permissions like

----rw--wx user user ...

instead of

-rw-r--r-- user user ...

which may take other software which rely on the .mo files not to work at all
(eg. php-gettext in my very case).

Moreover this is very frustraging considering you have to remember to change
these permissions everytime you apply a chenge to the .po file and re-compile
the .mo one (or you need to manually compile it with some other tool such as
