Great,  thanks.  Currently I have the source code changed to 022  in the 
files suggested.
I had to change a few other files to get the stdout and stderr too 002. 
But I'll certainly try the prolog suggestion. 

Yes, I'll be happy to verify the JOB_UMASK when it is available.  Is it in 

While you are at it, if I may, please provide something like STDOUT_UMASK 
as well.   The reason this umask becomes a very important requirement is 
that we allow 
all group access at a project level.   So project team member can easily 
work on other people's
work.   Even a SGE output file, without 002, it may stop other group 
members' work flow.

Come to think of , why can we not inherit the umask from user's shell

Well, you could do that. The umask(2) calls you have to 
change are these

    daemons/shepherd/builtin_starter.c:   umask(022);
    daemons/shepherd/shepherd.c:      umask(022);

second possibility is you tinker a prolog script that changes 
the umask of stdout/stderr files by using job environment


as explained in qsub(1).

Third possibility is that I work on an enhancement in a way that 
you got a JOB_UMASK parameter with execd_params of sge_conf(5) as
suggested by IZ#639. If you would help us verifying the result in 
your environment there could be a chance to get it into the 6.1 
final release.
