Description Jonadab the Unsightly One 2004-12-28 05:44:21 UTC
With most of the remaining issues after the outage worked out, I find that I
can now shell into the site again, but a permissions issue keeps me from 
having access to some of the project's files.  For example:
jonadab@gabe:~$ tail /srv/clipart.freedesktop.org/error.log
tail: cannot open `/srv/clipart.freedesktop.org/error.log' for reading:
Permission denied

I suspect this is just a group membership issue, since when I touch a file in 
my home directory it ends up belonging to the freedesktop group, not clipart.

Nicu Buculei has indicated that his account is experiencing the same problem.
I believe his username is nicubunu

Sorry we didn't discover this sooner; I was a little busy with the holidays
and just sort of let things slide for a while after the outage.  Hopefully
this is one of the last things that needs to be cleaned up.
Comment 1 Nicu Buculei 2004-12-28 06:12:02 UTC
correct, my username is 'nicubunu' and I'm in the same situation: i was a member
of the clipart group before the server upgrade but not anymore
Comment 2 Daniel Stone 2004-12-28 15:09:54 UTC
You are very much in the clipart group:
daniels@gabe:~% id jonadab
uid=2773(jonadab) gid=800(freedesktop) groups=800(freedesktop),546(clipart)
daniels@gabe:~% id nicubunu
uid=2744(nicubunu) gid=800(freedesktop) groups=800(freedesktop),546(clipart)

The problem is with permissions on the log file, which has been fixed.

Ah, sure enough.  Thanks for the fix.
