Hi there,

The dnsmasq man page for the --user parameter says that "Dnsmasq must
_normally_ be started as root".  We tested starting as non-root user, but
with capabilities cap_net_bind_service, cap_net_admin, cap_net_raw.  It
currently seems to work, but I'm debating if we should actually use this

So should the ambiguous adverb 'normally' be removed from the
documentation?  If not, what are the circumstances in which it is allowed
to not start as root?

Kind regards,
