"""Fixes for running Mailman under the `secure-linux' patch or grsecurity.

Run check_perms -f and only then -f
Note that you  will have to re-run  this script after a  mailman upgrade and
that check_perms will undo part of what this script does

If you use  Solar Designer's secure-linux patch, it prevents  a process from
linking (hard link) to a file it doesn't own.
Grsecurity ( can have  the same restriction depending
on how it was built, including other restrictions like preventing you to run
a program if it is located in a directory writable by a non root user.

As a  result Mailman has to  be changed so that  the whole tree is  owned by
Mailman, and  the CGIs and some  of the programs  in the bin tree  (the ones
that lock config.pck  files) are SUID Mailman.  The idea  is that config.pck
files have to be owned by the  mailman UID and only touched by programs that
are UID mailman.
At the  same time, We have  to make sure  that at least 3  directories under
~mailman aren't writable by mailman: mail, cgi-bin, and bin

Binary commands that are changed to be SUID mailman are also made unreadable
and unrunnable  by people who aren't  in the mailman group.   This shouldn't
affect much since most of those commands would fail work if you weren't part
of the mailman group anyway.
Scripts in ~mailman/bin/ are  not made suid or sgid, they need  to be run by
user mailman or root to work.
