I understand, I thought you wanted to have an official registry for
uid/gid mappings, but you just want to know which user/groups exist at
But maybe the following can make you happy: A script that greps
through the CVS and extracts these for you automatically.
If that works: sure. But we should not force sysadmins to download the
whole cvs and run such a script -- we instead should autogenerate and
upload it somewhere IMHO.
But that's not something we would mention in the guidelines.
