Hello, there. First-time poster here.
I'm currently packaging a simple snake game that needs access to /var/games/<package-name>/high-scores.
Upstream builds it with setgid 'root:games', but dh_fixperms cancels that out. Is it really necessary to give such elevated privileges to it's executable?
If it is, a previous post on this mail list  suggests dropping this privilege as soon as possible. Should I instruct the upstream to comply to this?
Thanks for your attention,
