    Description

      The cvmfs_swissknife can be awarded by cvmfs_server with a CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability when overlayfs is used. This capability might be lost during package updates. Verify the update procedure. This is also a problem during development when the binary is replaced by make install. Perhaps cvmfs_swissknife should get CAP_SYS_ADMIN by the cmake install procedure.
