I'm trying to get launchd to start rancid daily, but have had a lot of
trouble (assuredly because of my inexperience with launchd).  Launchd
is launching the process, and log files are being written as www (the

  Trying to get all of the configs.
  can't read "env(HOME)": no such variable

I believe this is because the environment isn't set up properly.  If I
run rancid-run from the command line (bash) "sudo -u www rancid-run"
it runs fine.

I'd really appreciate some direction on how to fix this.
