Description SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-07-19 17:49:43 UTC
please add `enewuser` and `enewgroup` to the postgres ebuilds so we can remove
them from baselayout's passwd/group
Comment 1 Paul Bredbury 2006-01-16 05:57:45 UTC
The user & group are created in pkg_setup() for versions >=7.3.11 - why has e.g. version 7.3.10 been excluded?
Comment 2 Masatomo Nakano (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-17 01:05:06 UTC

I don't want to edit stable ebuilds. (7.3.11 was unstable when I added it)
That's why I didn't add it to the ebuild.
Comment 3 Luca Longinotti (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-09-30 08:36:09 UTC
All dev-db/postgresql ebuilds do now have enewuser/enewgroup calls to create their own groups and users, closing this.
Best regards, CHTEKK.
