Hi Alexander;

Thanks for working on task-spooler. I have used it before and found it
pretty useful.

Some comments

     - you miss Gentoo Foundation as copyright holder for the ebuild files

     - your version number is odd. If your package is ready for upload
      (in your opinion) it should have a version like 0.7.0-1

     - I have a vague memory of this being discussed before, but I can't
       find the discussion now.  As far as I can tell, there are several
       ways in which the socket setup could be improved.

       - I don't really understand why the permissions on
         /tmp/socket-ts.$uid are group and world readable.

       - having the socket in world writable location makes ts
         vulnerable to a denial of service attack.

       wouldn't it be better to put the socket in a mode 0700 directory
       e.g. in the users home directory?
