I understand :) But now that you're packaging it, you should let people
know by retitling the bug to ITP and setting yourself as the bug owner
(otherwise someone else might start working on it too, only to discover
the work has already been done). And don't forget to add "(Closes:
#603842)" to your changelog.

I guess "nobody" is okay, unless the daemon needs to access files that
should only be read-/writable by it.
