Hi all,

Discussion has turned to assigning UID's and GID's to specific users
and groups. Is this really necessary?

I know I won't follow any prescribed method of assigning UID/GID's
as I have already a system I use. Should BLFS really be in the
business of assigning UID's and GID's, or should that be best left
to the builder, who is building his own system?

Your distro, your rules. But we say do it this way.

Shouldn't we leave it up to the builder to assign his UID/GID
