Package: nagios2-common
Version: 2.6-2+etch1
Severity: normal

Hi there,

I was investigating why I have these massive nagios logs, and it turns out
/var/log/nagios2/archives is root:root 0755.  This means nagios can't write
there, breaking it's built in rotation method.  Can you add a setperm call for
this directory along with the others in nagios2-common's postinst?
