I’m afraid, it isn’t. 0.26.0-dmo3 still contains the line „su mythtv
mythtv” in /etc/logrotate.d/mythlogserver. But as long as /var/log/mythtv
has the permissions „mythtv:mythtv” with 2775, logrotate refuses to work:

error: skipping „/var/log/mythtv/mythavtest.log” because parent directory
has insecure permissions (It’s world writable or writable by group which
is not „root”) Set „su” directive in config file to tell logrotate which
user/group should be used for rotation.

So maybe we should change to „root:mythtv” with 755?
