Several files in python-wxpython 4.0.5-2 are readable only by the owner (root), thus rendering the package unusable. Not only that, since /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/wxPython-4.0.5-py3.7.egg-info/PKG-INFO is also only readable by root, apps that don't even use wxpython, e.g. community/synapse, fails to start.

Additional info:
* package version(s)


* config and/or log files etc.

* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:

$ sudo find /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/wx \! -perm -g+r | wc -l
