  To create users and groups in packages using dynamic allocation, do the following:

  

- Create a `<package-name>.sysusers` file with the user definition and add it to the specfile as a source.

+ Create a `<package-name>-sysusers.conf` file with the user definition and add it to the specfile as a source.

  For example for the `munge` package, this file contains:

  ```

  #Type Name   ID  GECOS                        Home directory  Shell

  u     munge  -   "Runs Uid 'N' Gid Emporium"  /run/munge      /sbin/nologin

  ```

  

- In the specfile, add a BuildRequires for systemd-rpm-macros, install the sysusers file,

-  and use the `%sysusers_create_compat` macro to consume it in the `%pre` section

- (in this example the sysusers config file is `Source3` of the specfile):

-> Starting from Fedora 33 the following new macros shall be used

No,
1. Requires(pre): /usr/bin/systemd-sysusers
is missing.
2. sysusers_create_compat instead of sysusers_create

We are not using systemd-sysusers yet right now.

What stops from? even in Fedora 35/36 ?

See https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Adopting_sysusers.d_format for the current status. Changing this would require creating and submitting a Fedora Change request.
