Tiger complaints on /home group
Since the author seems to hang out here (actually I think he's
the one who long ago suggested I should join this list) I
thought this might be a good place to ask.
I'm getting lots of complaints from tiger about:
OLD: --WARN-- [acc023w] Login ID XXXXXX's parent directory (/home) has group `staff' write access.
One for every user on every machine. Why is Tiger complaining? This
is the normal set up for Debian, or at least has been for years.
I might also note lots of messages in which Tiger seems to mistake
the size field for the group field:
OLD: --FAIL-- [acc006w] Login ID nobody's home directory (/tmp) has group `16384' and world write access.
Tiger would be far more useful if we cleared up some of these
false positives by either:
A) Change Debian to do things in a secure way
B) Change Tiger to not complain about things that
everyone thinks are not problems.
