RFC: Removal of user/groups
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Per an discussion in IRC about removal of user or groups when purging
packages, I though of asking for comments about a proposal of updating
Basically the idea is that, if a package is creating an user or an
group, that is dynamically allocated, then the package may not remove
that user/group when purging the package.
The reason is that, first, for dynamically allocated user/groups, more
than one package might use/create the same user/group.
Second, the package in question might create files using that
user/group during it's execution.
Third, recreating the user/group later might not result in the same ID
(I assume at least).
For static allocated user/groups, I don't think it's a much of a
problem to remove the user/group, as only one package is going to
create that user/group, and it will always have the same ID.
What do you think?
