are the files in question writable by the user that tomcat runs as?
(usually tomcat4 in debian) this is what mir will need to write the
mir doesn't at the moment support updating cities.inc out of the box,
however, there is a script calling producer node that could be set up
to wget this file from www.indymedia.org....or you could get write
permissions for the user you log in as and wget it yourself
periodically. hop on #mir if you need help with this...but if you
can't write producers.xml, than this will prove problematic.
the best thing to do would be to get a daileon tech to make a vienna
group, and make all the files writable by your user as well as by
tomcat4 or whatever...
