Talk:DeveloperWiki:UID / GID Database
Why should user and group be created at build time? This sounds really weird to me. Arch packages aren't supposed to be shared? You can very well build a package and not install it immediately.
In any cases, I think this task definitively needs to be made at install time. That is why it is always done in scriptlets. Now what you might want to do is somehow unifying this task inside the scriptlets. If that's the case, please add your proposal with the two functions there : FS#10375 and maybe edit the wiki accordingly. --shining 04:42, 19 May 2008 (EDT)
