/var/lib/tomcat6/webapps should be writeable by tomcat6

Bug #287447 reported by Thierry Carrez on 2008-10-22
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
tomcat6 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: tomcat6

/var/lib/tomcat6/webapps is currently shipped with root:root 755

This prevents the unpackWARs=true statement from being honoured
See http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/config/host.html#Automatic%20Application%20Deployment

We should ship it as root:tomcat6 775 so that tomcat6 and other members of the tomcat6 group can deploy and unpack under /var/lib/tomcat6/webapps.
