Hi,

Does anyone have any scripts/guidelines/suggestions for using groups,
set-groupID permissions, and/or umasks to avoid needing root access to
install/update gems?  Specifically, how to manage binaries installed
in /usr/local/bin?

Has anyone even tried this, or does everyone do it via manually via
sudo (or automate via NOPASSWD entries in sudoers)?

Thanks,
--Chad W
