Well, if it wasn't the build would abort with an error :-)
Having directories with setgid bits is rather unusual though. Are
you sure it's required?
Yes, it is required.
Now I made a permissions file, which need to be reviewed for acceptance.
Thank you.

Well, if you want entries in the permissions files in Factory please
file a bug for security-team so the request is documented properly.
However, looking at the permissions file you include it's not acceptable
anyways. You must not package sub-directories in service owned
directories. rpm cannot handle that in a safe way.
Having a 'bin' directory rw by a service user looks immediately
suspicious. Looks like the init script even starts scripts from there
and the init script runs as root!


PS: hostname -f is evil, even more so in a sysconfig file.
