#453 Changes/SystemdSysusers updates for Packaging:UsersAndGroups
Closed: Fixed None Opened 5 years ago by mitr.

This is a placeholder for the guidelines update required for https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/SystemdSysusers .

(Note that systemd is already using this in F21; FESCo was asked to consider this usage in https://fedorahosted.org/fesco/ticket/1329 , and decided not to prohibit it unless FPC asks FESCo to.)


From today's meeting (https://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/packaging/2014-September/010270.html) we had a bunch of questions and PROPOSED:

"We don't mind moving from calling adduser, to having files installed that specify that information (maybe this implementation, maybe another). Also we don't mind someone testing a small number of packages to shake problems out of this implementation, and then they can come back with a real policy change. Would also be helpful to have a better revert plan than change all the rpms again."

...it currently needs more votes:

  • 453 Changes/SystemdSysusers updates for Packaging:UsersAndGroups

  • ACTION: Needs votes: #453 Small number of packages to test new
    sysusers user creation code (+1:4, 0:1, -1:0) (systemd marketing joy
    gets the non-pass, atm.) (geppetto, 17:28:29)

From today's meeting we got the final vote on the above proposal:

  • 453 Changes/SystemdSysusers updates for Packaging:UsersAndGroups

  • LINK: https://fedorahosted.org/fpc/ticket/453 (geppetto, 16:49:38)
  • ACTION: #453 Small number of packages to test new sysusers user
    creation code (+1:5, 0:1, -1:0) (geppetto, 16:51:54)

...so goto and open a new ticket (referencing this one) after you've tested a small number of packages and decided on a final policy.
