FAQ
Good Morning,

Today I finally started upgrading from 2.1.2 to 2.1.4 on a corporate
departmental server. When I did this I changed one minor thing and
check_perm definitely didn't like it.

- Previous config
/tool/mailman -> NetApp filesystem
/.package/mailman-2.x.x -> Different versions
/archives
/data
/lists
/locks
/logs
/qfiles
/spam

Each version would symlink the "VAR_DIRS" to the top level when we did
the upgrade. We'd then run the appropriate "update" script to change
anything needed in the confis.

- New config

Only differs in that I set --with-var-prefix=/tool/mailman when built.

So now when I run check_perm, it goes through *every* directory in
/tool/mailman and tells me I need to update the permissions to 02775.
This is definitely not right. This is particularly not right when it
starts going through the .snapshot directory!!!

Any suggestions on what the "right" thing to do is? Open a RFI to have
check_perm only check known directory structures recursively? Is there
something already in place?

Ciao,
