Description of problem:
Looks like libuser contains code for creating users home dir, however it is not usable in other projects using libuser library.

Sounds reasonable, the header file will probably have a different name though.
Comment 3 RHEL Product and Program Management 2013-10-13 20:29:12 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this
request at this time.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
