Re: Re: hot-backup.py and umask

Well, IANA sysadmin either :-) but... what you say makes sense. Have
root be responsible for backups. I don't see why that precludes the
solution I suggested, however. As root is doing its backup tasks, it
runs a process as svn.

In other words, in a backup script, you can use a line like the
following to run a single command as a specified user:

    su - USER -c "COMMAND"

Then root can copy the results to a secure location or whatever.

hope that clarifies what I was suggesting.
