Package: gedit
Version: 2.18.2-1
Severity: important

When saving a file with ownership  root.usergroup and permissions 660 Gedit resets
owner/permission to user.usergroup and permissions to 600 , where user is the current
user who is member of the group usergroup.

Gedit should retain the original ownership and permissions.
