    EMACS ignoring umask

    When I create files with EMACS, it is creating files with permission 600, despite my default umask 022.

    This is becoming particularly troublesome with the p4 plugin, because when editing/commiting file the permissions are changed to 600 again. Possibly it is deleting and writing the file, and making the files unreadable by other users/groups.

    How do I change the default umask of EMACS to use 022?
