+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #772745 +++

Description of problem:
I need a user and group created for a package called wallaby.  The user and the group should both be "wallaby", and the user should have a home directory of /var/lib/wallaby.  These are used to own the wallaby service and data files.  The wallaby package currently creates the group/account with:

getent group wallaby >/dev/null || groupadd -r wallaby
getent passwd wallaby >/dev/null || \
  useradd -r -g wallaby -d %{_localstatedir}/lib/wallaby -s /sbin/nologin \
    -c "Owner of Wallaby service" wallaby
exit 0

Uidgid pair 181:181 reserved in Fedora Rawhide (setup-2.8.47-1.fc17), please modify your %pre section to match with these reserved uid/gid numbers. I do not plan to do an update of setup package in F15/F16 just for this, but it should be safe to use these numbers there - as dynamic system account creation starts above uidgid 200. Closing RAWHIDE.
