[Moved to spambayes at python.org. spambayes-dev is for discussion
about the development of SpamBayes: see http://spambayes.org/
> (1) Is there any reason that sb_server.py needs to run as root?
No, just make sure you're using ports accessible to the user, that
the scripts (and Python) are executable by the user, and that the
databases are both read & writable by the user. Why do you think it
needs to be run as root?
> (2) The initscripts call daemon(),
> Is it worth considering having sb_server.py do that, too?
I presume you're referring to the script on http://spambayes.org/
unix.html contributed by Dave Handley. If you'd like to submit your
own script, we'd be happy to put that up with the others.
