Hi all,

in some situations it can be required to keep the ownership of files the same while copying them into the jail. For example a daemon that uses a file or directory to store current sessions. The current jk_init config file format does not allow to specify this.

I was thinking of replacing the old format (example):

executables = /bin/bash
regularfiles = /etc/bashrc
libraries = /lib/mylib.so
directories = /etc/terminfo

with a new format (example):

path =  /bin/bash,  /etc/bashrc, /lib/mylib.so, /etc/terminfo
path_w_owner = /var/lib/mydaemon/
allow_setuid = /var/lib/mydaemon/some_file_with_setuid_permissions

this would copy files within /var/lib/mydaemon/ with their current ownership, keep the setuid permissions on /var/lib/mydaemon/some_file_with_setuid_permissions and for the rest it is the same as the above example.

is this a clear config file format? Can it do all the tricks you like to do with it?
