It is really questionable what the fix should be here. Note that there is the saslauth group that is shared with the cyrus-imapd package - so there certainly the -g 76 option should be added. But the saslauth user should use a different uid that is not preallocated in the setup yet.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion
in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release. Product Management has
requested further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products. This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update release.
this change is "nice to have", but in new Fedora version, it's breaking stuff (cyrus-imapd bug #744682 ), so it's a bad idea to fix it in rhel6
For fixing this, I'd have to update cyrus-imapd, but it'd change
a)cyrus user to saslauth user
b)changed uid of cyrus user
both could break existing installations
this change should be reverted
Allocating saslauth user as static id 76 is no-go - it should be either dynamically allocated or ask for static id reservation in setup package (if required). Creating group is perfectly ok, as this group id is reserved.
Moving back to Assigned and setting blocker, as this change is breaking cyrus-imapd package.
