[Starlingx-discuss] UID / GID adds and removes in setup package

Hi Dariush,

As I was reviewing the recent setup package refactor, I thought we need 
more background on why we add / remove uids and gids in the setup 
package vs for in an associated stx packages.

I can understand some of the uids (add associated gids) are being 
removed such as mail, operator, games, ftp, lp.  But the bin, daemon and 
adm users are also removed, and I think later we modify other packages 
because some of these users are missing.

Is there any reason we can't keep these standard UIDs/GIDs?
