During the course of review I noticed How can I avoid having to enter a password for an scp command by hard-coding the password into my script? sudodus asked some good questions in the comments and was providing what looked to me like valuable information. I encouraged an answer, meanwhile this question was closed as a duplicate of Run Bash Script as Root which to me doesn't appear to be a very good fit. I've voted to reopen in the hope that a quality answer can be provided. Does this seem to be a course of action the community can support?

    FWIW, I voted to close as unclear (but I should have retracted my vote after OP explained) - no way a dupe of that! – Zanna Dec 23 '18 at 8:07

    The question is no longer marked as duplicate. I have written an answer :-) – sudodus Dec 23 '18 at 10:24

No it's not the same. Clearly this is something the community was willing to take action on as the question was re-opened and a quality answer was provided by sudodus..
