Package: icinga
Version: 1.13.4-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

in the version of icinga in stretch, the icinca log files are created with permissions 600, 
user and group nagios:nagios or nagios:adm. This prevents the web frontend (which is run as 
www-data in case of apache2) from accessing it and displaying history for a service:

"Log file "/var/log/icinga/icinga.log" invalid! No timestamp found within first 16 bytes!

I have found not way of fixing this via additional group memberships. This was not the case
in nagios as distributed with the previous release. 

Thanks for looking into this,
