      XML-RPC: Run frisbeelauncher as root for subboss · 59857b38
      Ryan Jackson authored
      Subbosses authenticate to the XML-RPC server as elabman, which means the
      resulting server process runs as the elabman user.  Unfortunately, this
      doesn't work well when the subboss wants to launch a frisbeed for an
      image for which elabman doesn't have read permission (like images under
      /proj).
      
      To fix this, a setuid wrapper script is run instead of trying to run
      frisbeelauncher directly.  This script makes sure the calling user is
      elabman, and then becomes root and execs frisbee_launcher.
