The permissions have been fixed by thresh.
Ive added the missing commits back, and pushing seems to work again.
Ive also changed our github mirror config so it cannot receed as that happened
temporarly as one of 2 sync scripts aparently force pushed teh receeded HEADs

There are still some issues with git hooks. So pushing may not
be protected against trailing whitespace or such things. Also the ML and
IRC may not receive log mails. Thresh plans / is working on the hooks
this evening. They are expected to be workinhg againg in the european morning
