Description Pieter D.J. Krul 2014-05-24 14:38:29 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #790345 +++

Description of problem:
flumotion's logrotate.d file needs to set "su root flumotion" to suppress logrotate errors like:

error: skipping "/var/log/flumotion/*.log" because parent directory has insecure permissions (It's world writable or writable by group which is not "root") Set "su" directive in config file to tell logrotate which user/group should be used for rotation.

Trivial patch against current git is:

diff --git a/doc/redhat/flumotion.logrotate b/doc/redhat/flumotion.logrotate
index 4d5e566..e83b940 100644

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
