What is acct-user?


Question

Trying to update gpsd, usually moving over the latest gentoo ebuild accomplishes this, but now its trying to find acct-user.  My quick search on the subject suggests this is like the virtual ebuilds.  Not sure what the funtoo policy is on this stuff.

In case you're still wondering what it is and what it's trying to accomplish, take a look at this page:

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Categories_acct-group_and_acct-user

As for funtoo policies, afaik this practice has not been adopted here (yet?), so every ebuild does its own user-group management. I think a good example of this is the www-servers/lighttpd ebuild.

I guess I may try adding the eclass directory to my local overlay and put in the accnt and user eclasses, that seems like the most manageable choice long term.  But I want to think about all the consequences esp.  If funtoo decides to go a different direction.  I tried upgrading hplip too and it wants an lp user so this is going to start becoming an issue.
