This is userv, a trust boundary management service for Unix.

Using userv, one program can call another without either of them
having to trust the other completely.  This enables applications such
as mail delivery, cron, user-provided CGI scripts and so forth to
operate without needing to be given root privilege.

For installation requirements and instructions please see INSTALL.
For usage documentation and discussion see the manual in spec.*
(various formats via Debiandoc-SGML in spec.sgml).

The WWW page is <URL:http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~ian/userv/>.
There are two mailing lists: userv-discuss and userv-announce; both
are managed by majordomo@chiark.greenend.org.uk.  Send majordomo the
word `help' for instructions on how to subscribe and unsubscribe.

Please send bug reports and suggestions to
userv-maint@chiark.greenend.org.uk, or to the userv-discuss mailing
list if you are subscribed to it.
