Description Justin Sherrill 2008-07-24 17:50:53 UTC
When porting the package download from perl to java, tomcat will need to be able
to read all of the pacakges, but sat-sync and rhnpush currently marks the
packages as 640 with apache:root ownership.

This needs to be changed to 644.

Comment 1 Clifford Perry 2008-08-01 18:46:21 UTC
Any other viable options? 
- Make tomcat user in the apache group *and* then change sat-sync code to write
0640 apache:apache
0640 apache:root

Does 'root' need this access at group level to the files? 

Making the files globally readable by change:
is less of a change to do, less risky in code, but does expose the entire
/var/satellite/ contents to any normal user on that has ssh access, but is this
a problem, most likely not. 

So, 0644 sounds fine, I think the risk exposure is minimal. 

Pretty sure this is a one liner to change:
satellite_tools/        setPermsPath(self.full_path, user='apache',
group='root', chmod=0640)

*if* we make a change, we will need as part of upgrade process, a separate bug
to track and if needed as part of upgrade change permissions. 


Comment 2 Pradeep Kilambi 2008-08-01 19:12:37 UTC
fixed and upgrade process already handles this perms update.

Comment 3 Devan Goodwin 2008-09-05 15:44:28 UTC
Verified in spacewalk 0.2. Packages are being stored with 0644. (-rw-r--r--)

Comment 4 Brandon Perkins 2009-02-10 02:01:13 UTC
