Package-specific README for USBprog                                 2010-01-03

(1) Permissions

    This package contains a udev rules file in /etc/udev/rules.d/ that puts the
    USB device files below /dev/bus/usb/* that belogs to the hardware listed
    below in the group '@@USBPROG_GROUP@@'. To enable access for an ordinary user,
    put that user in the group '@@USBPROG_GROUP@@'.

    This group has been chosen because of several reasons:

     • the serial devices (/dev/tty*) are put into that group by the
       distribution vendor,
     • users that use microcontrollers usually also use a serial interface
       for debugging, so the user is already in that group,
     • in the avrdude package of openSUSE, the parallel port (/dev/parport*)
       is in the 'uucp' group.

    If you see any serious security problems in that decision, please report
    this as bug. But don't come with HAL/PAM etc. solutions that are very
    distribution-specific and change each year. Does anybody remember the
    times when SUSE patched their software to use 'resmgr'?
