Jacob Weber created CB-10993:
--------------------------------

             Summary: cordova creates shared /tmp/git directory that's only writable by current
user
                 Key: CB-10993
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-10993
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: CLI
    Affects Versions: 6.0.0
            Reporter: Jacob Weber
            Priority: Minor


I have a Linux machine where multiple users run cordova. They use a project whose config.xml
has a plugin specifies a particular revision:
{code}
<plugin name="cordova-plugin-statusbar" spec="https://github.com/apache/cordova-plugin-statusbar#244eb71"
/>
{code}

When they {{cordova prepare}} the project, it ends up calling
{{/usr/local/lib/node_modules/cordova/node_modules/cordova-lib/src/gitclone.js}}, which creates
a directory {{/tmp/git}}.

But the directory is only writable by the current user. So when the next user runs it, they
get an error:
{code}
    [exec] Fetching plugin "https://github.com/apache/cordova-plugin-statusbar" via git clone
    [exec] shell.js: internal error
    [exec] Error: EACCES: permission denied, mkdir '/tmp/git/1459363203511'
    [exec]     at Error (native)
    [exec]     at Object.fs.mkdirSync (fs.js:799:18)
    [exec]     at mkdirSyncRecursive (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/cordova/node_modules/cordova-lib/node_modules/shelljs/src/mkdir.js:11:8)
    [exec]     at /usr/local/lib/node_modules/cordova/node_modules/cordova-lib/node_modules/shelljs/src/mkdir.js:63:7
    [exec]     at Array.forEach (native)
    [exec]     at Object._mkdir (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/cordova/node_modules/cordova-lib/node_modules/shelljs/src/mkdir.js:48:8)
    [exec]     at Object.mkdir (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/cordova/node_modules/cordova-lib/node_modules/shelljs/src/common.js:186:23)
    [exec]     at Object.clone (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/cordova/node_modules/cordova-lib/src/gitclone.js:45:11)
    [exec]     at Object.module.exports.clonePluginGitRepo (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/cordova/node_modules/cordova-lib/src/plugman/util/plugins.js:42:18)
    [exec]     at Object.module.exports.clonePluginGit (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/cordova/node_modules/cordova-lib/src/plugman/util/plugins.js:32:31)
{code}

This could be solved by using a temporary directory within the user's home directory, or by
making {{/tmp/git}} world-writable.
