Bug#42239: dpkg: start-stop-daemon needs an option to change UID
> Package: dpkg
> Version: 126.96.36.199
> start-stop-daemon should have a command line option to change UID or GID.
I'd second this request. However, it should be of type wishlist. The
answer I've always got was to su to the user in question and let
start-stop-daemon run from within the su'd environment.
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
