Description moggie 2009-01-27 20:30:03 UTC
In order to modify ban files such as kline.conf and xline.conf, ircd-ratbox 2.2.x needs write permissions to the directory containing these files so it can manipulate their temporary counterparts during the update process. To facilitate this, and to save the user from having to make this change themselves, the '/usr/local/etc/ircd-ratbox/' directory is now set to be owned by the IRCD user instead of root.

Worth noting that this issue does not affect ircd-ratbox 3.x since it stores its ban data using sqlite in a different location, and that the IRCD configuration file (ircd.conf) itself should still be owned by root as an additional security measure. Thanks go to steinex@efnet for this.
