Added myself to the lock group

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi, I'm running heyu, the home automation software, and it wanted to write to /var/lock. Fedora makes /var/lock only root writeable (I did change this, but it gets changed back after a reboot so I presume that's saying, "Hey, don't do that!"). So I see that the Fedora way is to use /var/lock/lockdev which is root and the lock group writeable. I changed heyu to write to that lock directory, and have added myself to the group lock. This works, but I'm wondering if it is how I should be thinking about this...or am I meant to make heyu run as a member of lock, or something el (HowTos)
