    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.
