Who is supposed to be the owner of the
.config directory under user's home folder?
On my machine it appears to be owned by the
system user and it is only readable by that user.
Several programs, like Homebrew and git (which should be allowed to be used without root permissions) complain by producing warnings as shown below:
warning: unable to access '/Users/andrea/.config/git/attributes': Permission denied
Perhaps the ownership of my
.config folder was changed in mistake? Who should be the owner?
system should be the owner, is it safe to make it readable and writable by other users?
