As I understand startd cron, you configure your nodes to periodically run a script that publishes custom attributes, and the way a regular user would publish their custom attributes is by modifying the script. (Or am I missing something?)

The script runs as condor (root) user, so security-wise this is worse than letting them 'sudo condor-reconfig' as now they can run anything as condor.

Either way, my point was that doesn't work when you're shipping (flocking, gliding) jobs off-site and have no control over execute nodes whatsoever.
