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