[pkg-kolab] Bug#581757: kolabd: Permissions on /etc/imapd.group are wrong

Package: kolabd
Version: 2.2.3-20091217-2
Severity: important
Tags: patch


kolabs imapd uses /etc/imapd.gorup as basis for group permissions.
This file is generated by /etc/kolab/templates/imapd.group.template
However it sets the permissions to root.root, and therefore cyrus cannot read the file and
silently (this is an issue in upstream, it should log the fact) skips to /etc/group

Fix is simple, just set the permissions to cyrus.something.
