New submission from SivaKumar NSK <kavinsivak at gmail.com>:

Hello All,

I am having some python script, which will be loaded when I run lpinfo -v in Manjaro Linux Distro (18.0.4) which has Python 3.7 , it is creating _pycache__ directory with full permission, not root user can edit those file.

May i know on what basis the permission of the __pycache__ directory has been decided.

Thanks in advance.
