data dir permissions and ownership

P: n/a
CSN
My permissions on pg's data dir got changed. Largely
just curious (since pg appears to be working fine
after changing as below), is this what they should be?

chown -R postgres.nobody data
chmod -R 0700 data

Try postgres.postgres, otherwise that looks okay AFAICT.
