Hi,

I haven't thought about it thoroughly but I suspect changing
/var/lib/tomcat8 permissions to tomcat8:tomcat8 could create a security
issue (for example any webapp could change the Tomcat configuration by
replacing the /var/lib/tomcat/conf symlink). What kind of generated data
do you want to put in /var/lib/tomcat8? Did you consider using
/var/cache/tomcat8 or another custom directory under /var instead?
