tara@tequilarista.org is the new owner of Bugzilla and Bonsai.  (For details,
see my posting in netscape.public.mozilla.webtools,

[Just installed bonsai on our site today.]
You have to run ./createlegaldirs.pl <treename> (in most cases, default) from
bonsai directory.
Matt's the default QA for this component, and he got left off somehow (probably 
the bug was reported before bonsai had a default QA).  Matt, should this be 
resolved/invalid?  or should this bug be redirected towards fixing the 
documentation on this item? :)  I also just installed bonsai, and the previous 
comment before mine is correct.
Dave, I'm mainly the Bonsai QA because I got handed QA for most of Webtools when
I volunteered for Bugzilla, because no one else was doing it.  I don't know too
much more about Bonsai than what I can see on bonsai.mozilla.org.

So, basically, the answer to your question in this case is "Who, me?".

There's some known problems around this.  The workaround is pretty simple. 
Create a file called "legaldirs" in your data dir and make sure it's writable by
whatever is running bonsai--nobody/apache/or if you don't care about security,
777.

Corallary--if you see this when creating additional bonsai pages other than
"default", you need to create the legaldirs file in each page's subdirectory.

Running createlegaldirs.pl is listed as a step in INSTALL so I'm going to assume
that this was just a documentation bug.
