Make Deluged allow other users to touch downloaded files

By default, deluged on Arch creates files as -rw-r–r–. I want -rw-rw-r– so that other non-daemon regular users have access to modify and delete the downloaded files. The fix is to add the non-deluge users to the “deluge” group (125), then add umask 002 to the “login” process of the daemon. So, in /etc/rc.d/deluged:

stat_busy "Starting Deluge Daemon"
[[ -z $PID ]] && su -l -s /bin/sh -c "umask 002 && /usr/bin/deluged >/dev/null" $DELUGE_USER
