Drupal Association members fund grants that make connections all over the world.
I just tried updating some modules through the Drupal interface. All failed, and they all produced errors like this:
The file permissions could not be set on temporary://update-cache.
This error is not useful because Drupal declines to tell me the directory path where the module is trying to be saved.
I filed this as a bug because unhelpful error messages are contrary to the usability improvements.
