The files created by the 'hoogle data' command in /usr/share/hoogle
should probably all be world readable. The directories should all
be world readable and world executable (ie allow anyone to chdir
into it).

That makes sense. If you have a darcs repo of the code (or even a
tarball), I can check it before create a package.
