app-admin/logstash-forwarder: Allow to specify user/group for service
logstash-forwarder is running as logstash user in Gentoo by default. It might be desired to run it as other user who has access to log files, presumably as root. The other solution for accessing logs would be adding logstash user to groups as which services are run and make logs readable by that group. It is also possible in some cases to change group for log files, e.g. in syslog-ng. Thanks to Tomas Mozes <hydrapolic@gmail.com> for submitting patch. Gentoo-Bug: 557462 Package-Manager: portage-2.2.20.1
