      Description

      the Amazon EC2 Plugin requires root access - either by ssh'ing to to root or requiring the non-root user to have sudo. Our slave AMI's are designed to use the user "hudson" - no root access is required for the slave to do it's work.

      The solution here is to use the "Remote user" dir if no "Root command prefix" is given (rather than assuming root).

      Thanks!
