Package: tomcat8
Version: 8.5.14-1+deb9u2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

My call to the 'tomcat8' you is to change the ownership of directory 
/var/lib/tomcat8 from 'root:root' to 'tomcat8:tomcat8'.

I have a tomcat8 installed in Debian-based OS through aptitude.

The $HOME of user tomcat8, according to /etc/passwd, is /var/lib/tomcat8. the 
default $CATALINA_BASE, described by /etc/init.d/tomcat8, is also 
/var/lib/tomcat8.
For what the ownership of directory /var/lib/tomcat8 had been set to 
'root:root'? that means I cannot mkdir under neither $HOME nor $CATALINA_BASE.

Software packages to OS is what web apps to Tomcat, a software package can 
mkdir under user's home dir, but a web app cannot mkdir under tomcat user's 
home dir due to lacking of permission, such that a webapp developer cannot find 
a proper location to put their generated data.
