[Monotone-debian] Bug#437978: monotone-server: Incorrect user and group

From: Michael Berg
Subject: [Monotone-debian] Bug#437978: monotone-server: Incorrect user and group on /var/run/monotone/
Date: Tue, 14 Aug 2007 22:55:45 -0600

Package: monotone-server
Version: 0.35-2
Severity: normal

monotone-server creates /var/run/monotone/ with
user=root, group=root, and permissions=drwxr-xr-x

Since /etc/init.d/monotone starts mtn as
user=monotone, group=monotone
the mtn process can not write to /var/run/monotone/.

The mtn process fails with the following message
in /var/log/monotone/mtn.log
mtn: error: failed to create pid file '/var/run/monotone/'

A quick "chown monotone:monotone /var/run/monotone/" fixes
the problem, but this needs to eventually get moved back into
the monotone-server package.
