    Some permission change that none of the members of the
    Amanda project made has broken its installation of
    FAQ-O-Matic. The log directory that used to be
    writable by the user who run the cgi script no longer
    is. The last modification in the directory was on Feb
    7, at 02:47. Probably some automated
    permission-changer. Please revert whatever
    modification you have made so that FAQ-O-Matic works again.

    Thanks in advance,

    It wasn't a permission change, it was an ownership change.
    All of the files under /home/group have been changed to be
    owned by "dummy" and since a FAQ-O-Matic is run by the web
    server, many of its files must be owned by the web server
    (i.e., "nobody") to work properly. This broke the Mahogany
    FAQ-O-Matic as well.

    I'd like to know why the ownership of these files changed.
    And I'd like to know what SourceForge is going to do to fix
    it. Moreover, I'd like to know _when_ they plan to do it.
    And most importantly, I'd like to know what they are going
    to do to prevent this sort of debacle in the future.

    However, my bet is that they will never answer any of these
    questions; that they will just mark this request as a
    duplicate of some unknown other bug, and never take
    responsibility for the problem.
