Xcode License Requires Admin Privileges

Early this morning, I installed on my MacBook Pro at work Apple’s latest software updates, including Xcode 6.0.1. The update went smoothly.

Agreeing to the Xcode/iOS license requires admin
privileges, please re-run as root via sudo.

Ordinary user accounts cannot agree to Apple’s license. Obviously, we are all safer with that rule.
