Package: thttpd-util
Version: 2.23beta1-4
X-Debbugs-Cc: era+debian@iki.fi

The "makeweb" utility is supposed to let users create their own
directory structure in /var/www/users, but in order to be able to do
this, the utility needs to be setgid to the group owner of that
directory (this is mentioned in the source code). At present, that
directory is group "root" on my installation, and makeweb is not setgid.

Perhaps it would be simpler in the short term to simply replace this
command with a no-op warning unless you relly want to go through the
hassle to introduce a new group and a new setgid program.

If this were a real .signature, it would suck less.  Well, maybe not.
