The extra repo and the unstable repo for both arches have that problem. 
On Tobias's request, I've set the permissions to 664 as temporary fix.

My guess is that it was caused by the db-move script which I uses last 
night to move gimp-devel to extra as the testing x86_64 db has the right 

It might have been caused by the way I did it. I first updated the 
unstable package (unstablepkg on my system, db-unstable on gerolde), 
checked the output then ran db-move a few minutes later. Perhaps I 
should've waited longer before running db-move.  Or maybe it's a problem 
with the cron jobs.
