Description Ville Skyttä 2006-02-20 13:18:05 EST
mailman has a dependency on "webserver", but it is configured with "apache" as
the  CGI user/group.  That smells like trouble; for example the boa package in
Extras provides "webserver", but does not create the "apache" user, nor is it
really its business.  Fix: change "Requires: webserver" to "Requires: httpd".

hmm, right, but one could create those user/grp and run mailman with another
Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2006-05-09 10:46:24 EDT
Probably.  But how does someone know that the user and group must be created
manually?   And even if they exist, can that other webserver actually run the
scripts as apache:apache, and if not, how does that affect mailman?
Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2006-05-09 10:53:37 EDT
right, right.... I'll change that...
