mlocate db directory

Hi,
Shouldn't /var/lib/mlocate directory belong to group mlocate by default so users that belong to mlocate group can run updatedb ?

cheers,
Adrian

It does on my system, but it's only writable by root.

same here. That must be a miss in setting permissions I think. Users belonging to mlocate group should be able to run updatedb, and the folder permission is stopping them from doing so.
