Description Lex Brugman 2009-12-10 22:58:21 UTC
The yate ebuild in portage runs the yate process as root, this shouldn't be necessary and it runs fine as a normal unprivileged user.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge yate
2. /etc/init.d/yate start
Actual Results:  
yate runs as root

Expected Results:  
run as an unprivileged user

As far as I know, there is a maintainer. And this is still relevant.
