/etc/apt/sources.list has most of the main update servers/repo locations
/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/* is usually where other sources get set-up (PPAs, etc.)

Is this the same server for the software depository? The reason I
mention this is because I run Mint on one of my computers. Their
software repository seems smaller than the Ubuntu software repository.

There are some softwares that don't seem to be in the Mint software
depository. Since Mint and Ubuntu are somewhat similar, probably some
(if not most) of the software should run on both OSes?

I am wondering how - or more exactly where - umask is defined on a stock Ubuntu server system.

I have reactivated the root account. Here's the respective default umask for root and normal users:

Nomal User:

$ umask

Root User

$ umask

On RHEL/CentOS, these values are defined in /etc/bashrc and then in the individual ~/.bashrc files. How does Ubuntu handle this?
