Re: Package maintainer script policy.

	I realized, of course, after sending the message, that the pre
 and post inst scripts are run as root, while the binaries need never
 be. I am getting senile. Hmm. 

	I guess we need to modify policy on this; and maybe require
 that all pre and post install and rm scripts need to be scripts for
 security purposes? 

 My boss just told the quote-of-the-day(TM) after talking to our
 friendly IBM salesguy who said: "You've got be careful about getting
 locked into open systems."  Heh!  Why don't I trust these people? :-)
