I suppose that if you are using the default non-privileged port then
there is no reason to start as root then drop to mumble-server user. I
don't see this behaviour in the mandriva rpm files that i cut out and
Next stop is getting SELinux to play nicely with it.
It is also just another bit of software that i have to track manually
though would be much happier to have it in the RPM database as my
"check for updates" bookmarked tab group is getting longer and more
painful to use.
