No, we do not (and will never) modify the tarball on the server-side. If
that really annoys you, just write a simple wrapper script around
mkaurball or patch mkaurball so that it adjusts the permissions.

Note that this issue will vanish soon anyway since the next major AUR
release will provide Git repositories for all AUR packages. You will no
longer need to create source tarballs.
