On the server, right? I thought it will respecting the local permissions.

Ok - so if I understand correctly I need to:

- delete the repo from FTP
- create directory there (like /repub/bzr/myproject)
- set permissions on that directory (lets say 777)
- push to that location forcing not creating new directory
- all files in the repo should be readable for all users (777)

Sure. I have used chmod -R approach and its ok now.

After new commit the permissions of the .pack file is also OK.

Great - thanks a lot. This should be documented somewhere...
