Hello,

I'm running cgit v1.2.3 on OpenBSD 6.8 with httpd and slowcgi. I'm 
getting tons of log errors in the form:
     Error reading owner-info for <REPOPATH>: No such file or directory 
(2)

I've found this Stack Overflow question 
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/48450631/ which suggests that the 
problem is with the call to getpwuid trying to access /etc/passwd:

     if ((pwd = getpwuid(st.st_uid)) == NULL) {
	    fprintf(stderr, "Error reading owner-info for %s: %s (%d)\n",
		    path->buf, strerror(errno), errno);
	    break;
     }

@ https://git.zx2c4.com/cgit/tree/scan-tree.c#n139

On OpenBSD, httpd runs in a chroot at /var/www, which would seem to 
suggest why cgit would not be able to access /etc/passwd

In my cgitrc I have
     enable-git-config=0
     enable-index-owner=0
so that doesn't help.

Is there any way to prevent all these error logs? Currently this fills 
up a log file about once an hour...

Thanks!

Without any changes to the code, if you set "repo.owner" (or
"gitweb.owner" if you have "enable-git-config" set) then this value will
be used and the loop that tries getpwuid() won't be entered.

I think it would be reasonable to provide a way to disable the "owner
from filesystem" code via cgitrc.  It's probably meaningless in many
setups, for example with Gitolite, where all the repositories are owned
by a "git" user anyway.

Thank you John, this solved it!
