source URL could use https, so it should.

I'm not actively using taskd anymore. If anyone would like to adopt it, please let me know.

@dustball, you should use taskd-git, the Taskwarrior folks say its stable at this point with only one outstanding bug before release.

Could you please apply a few of the taskd patches? Some of them are apparently only in the bugtracker. for example.

Would it be possible to add a few of the security features from to the systemd unit file?

jck commented on 2015-12-06 11:18

@rumplesepp: done!

install scripts should not remove any users. This is a security issue due to remaining and unkown user/group ids. Arch Linux recently has rebuilt some packages because of this issue:

Please remove this from your install script, thanks!

@asdil12 please send your patch upstream.

Could you please use this src pkg:

It adds a small patch to taskd that allows logging to stderr in order to let systemd handle the log.

This is the difference between the old and the new src pkg:

(you still need to run makepkg --source on the new srcpkg as it is missing the .SRCINFO file)

I've simplified the package. Now it just initialized the db. It no longer generates the keys. New users must manually configure taskd's pki.

@vit: See /var/lib seems to make sense since taskd is closer to a database server than a http server.

The default home directory for system users is /, I just left it at that. The manpage of sysusers.d suggests not to unnecessarily specify home directores unless the software strictly requires one to be set.
