    8080Dingbot creates accounts for the listed users if they don't exist already. The only change it makes to existing accounts is to set the user's shell as specified in the config file; it doesn't change anything else about existing accounts, even if the Dingbot config differs from the current state on the system.

     84Dingbot redirects output and errors to log files in /var/log, named dingbot-output-<timestamp>.log and dingbot-errors-<timestamp>.log, and those are good places to look if something didn't work as expected. If you run it by hand on the command line, you shouldn't get any output whether it succeeds or fails, because it tries hard to direct all output and errors into those files, so that no information is lost when it runs non-interactively at boot time (and it's not yet smart enough to detect whether it's being run in a terminal or not).
