  • that programmers should never be given root...not /ever/. I hope those sysadmins guilt you out of enough beer that you begin to feel queasy the next time you even think about root. :)
    • While that's valid, it's not strictly relevant here as the RPM has to do this, and the programmers have to write the RPM generation code.

      The real issue is it not going through QA (and this happened because the code to build this RPM has been in the QA queue for 6 months and keeps getting overlooked in favour of more important projects).

      It also shows that developers need sleep. I'm very tired right now and not sleeping well and am making stupid decisions because of this.
    • Because, you know, there have never been any sysadmins who've made a mistake while they're working as root :-)
