Of cource there is, but it would just be a quick and dirty bugfix not 
getting rid of the original problem. And it would put very heavy loads 
on cpu and filesystem on the archive-master. There are many ways to do 
that, one of them would be running this little script regularely in 
  chown [apache-user]:[apache-group] [/path/to/apache/root/] -R
  find [/path/to/apache/root/] -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
  find [/path/to/apache/root/] -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;

But as I stated before running that script through cron in regular 
intervals would put cpu and fs under quite a lot of stress, depending on 
the underlying hardware and the average load the server has now so it 
could only be a short term solution to automate fixing wrong modes 
and/or ownerships.

The only way to get rid of the problem is sort through all update 
scripts putting files onto the archive master and find the one running 
with the incorrect umask. And that can of course take a long time, that 
we should all give to the people doing that.

Perhaps you should consider the script above or something similar as a 
shortterm fix until you found the bug. Piping it through nice with a 
very high nicity level like 15 or above should ensure that other 
processes are not hindered by it. Of couse just until the bug is found 
and the annoying cron-mails stop happening...
