in PKGBUILD is source url set to
but if we download .tar.gz archive permissions will be correct as in tomcat7 package

Steps to reproduce:

Fun! File modes are wrong on the zip available at [0]! They are correct on the tar.gz. So switching to using this one. Thanks.

Now there is no difference between zip or tar.gz archives, both archives have files with permissions set to 644 but some files like need permissions set to 755 or similar to be able to execute by users with group tomcat8.

Didn't see your request to re-open this. Last tomcat 8.0.18-3 package ships bin/* scripts with 755 mode. Am I missing something here?

My fault, sorry, after I saw I was wrong I could not cancel reopen request.
