Package: redmine
Version: 1.1.3-1
Followup-For: Bug #631058

I'd need some help to better understand if /run is a place
for fcgi sockets.
If it is, I am not sure it's up to dispatch.fcgi to handle the creation
if the /run/redmine directory, it shouldn't have the permissions to do so
anyway (must be root).
Likewise, lighttpd cannot setup that directory either, since it's
already running as www-data when it spawns the fcgi instance (? unsure).

Apache2 mod-fcgid creates the sockets simply in /tmp.
This is simpler and avoids headache.

Anyway i'm removing creation of /var/run/redmine in postinst script,
it is indeed pointless.
I just wonder what's the best place to advise (the provided examples
in the doc mention /var/run).
