I think it might depend on your default umask; I might be completely
mistaken on this. If it doesn't create with write-only, you can use
os.chmod() to change permissions to what you want. Here's a small
function to do what you want:
os.chmod(dir_name, 0333) # represented as octal wxwxwx
and a test:
[dyoo@c82114-a dyoo]$ ls -l
d-wx-wx-wx 2 dyoo dyoo 4096 Jul 28 09:40 testtest
So this works ok. Good luck!
