Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 139087

Why is this ?
At first I thought: hey, other users can write my files, but then I
noticed my user is in a separate group (username steven, uid 500,
groupname steven uid 500). Can anyone explain, since I've never seen
anything like this before and don't really see what is could be for ?
(Note: not sure I filed this for the right component, but I had to
take a guess).
The default has always been one user per group. Google and the mailing
lists may be more helpful here.
The only thing I could find so far was just 'red hat uses
one-user-groups by default', but I still don't understand why that is.
Doesn't this make the whole groups-thing useless ?
If there is an official explanation for this on the mailing lists
somewhere and someone has a direct link, that would be nice, since I'm
not too skilled at searching them (and this is the first time I've
ever used Red Hat of Fedora full-time).
has some information/discussion.
Thanks for all the info :)
