Debian packaging in particular, should create chef user and set config files, etc, accordingly
Set as a blocking bug, related to CHEF-63. We won't have the packages in Debian until this bug is fixed.
Version 0.8.10+ of the packaging in the PPA and any later versions posted there or on apt.opscode.com will incorporate the ability to start server daemons as chef. The client still needs to run as root.
Joshua, can we mark this as closed, or does this require more work?
Lets close it!
