File permissions problem with xml-mapping gem, version 0.8.1

Hi there!

In version 0.8.1 of the xml-mapping gem, all of the files have "-rw-------" permissions. So, if the gem is installed by one user, it cannot be used by another user. The directory permissions all look OK, "drwxr-xr-x".

Less importantly, the files all have a timestamp at the unix epoch.

Is there any way to fix this issue in the gem source, so I don't have to manually change the permissions after installing it?

    RubyGems records the permissions the author specifies, so please contact the gem author and have them upload a corrected gem.

    RubyGems does not record file timestamps in gems, so all will be at the unix epoch.
