Description Miloslav Trmač 2011-06-28 04:14:21 UTC
modules/create_user.py categorizes UIDs as system/user using a
hard-coded value 500.  Please use UID_MIN from /etc/login.defs for this; we
plan to change the boundary.

See attachment 510191 [details] for the proper way to parse /etc/login.defs.

Please let me know if you want me to prepare a complete patch.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
