No... I'm talking about the fact that the 6.3.x createuser script
doesn't allow the username 'www-data' and the 6.4.x createuser script
Your right about the permissions problem, but I don't find that
problem to be really be a problem. I just use group permissions
anyway. From a developer's standpoint, using groups to manage perms
is better than using users anyhow, since there's an additional level
In short, no need to change the default web user just to work around a
bug in one database package, a bug you can workaround anyhow.
The onshore-timesheet package contains a script called 'install-db'
which is called from postinst and performs all the actions described
here (hands free, idempotently).
