Adding system users and setuid
In the work I'm doing on packaging buildd, I would need to have some
programs setuid buildd (and setuid rbuilder and setuid wanna-build).
I can easily create the user in postinst if it does not exist, but
that means I then need to change the ownership of all files that
should be owned by buildd etc, and then set the setuid bit on all
Is there a standard way to do this, when you do not know the UID in
advance? I guess it's not possible to do this at build time?
Is postinst the best place for this, or is there a better way?
