Platform updates causing build errors

Recently there was a significant number of package updates following a kernel update for the AWS instance I’m using. This has caused a number of build errors, which I think are the result of permissions reverting back to default rather than those I’ve changed to allow the build process to install files too – of course this isn’t the right solution, I should put the build user into a group allowed to make those changes by default, but that would require a bit more thinking about permissions than I can bring to bear at the moment. In the meantime, here are the projects affected by this problem:

  • alabaster
  • ffc
  • fiat
  • instant
  • snowball
  • sphinx_rtd_theme
  • ufl

I have updated the site-packages permissions and rebuilt all of these packages, which has resolved all of these problems.
