2) Work with another distro to share the range of static uids.
What do people think of this? Will it cause pain for too many sites?
Is it an acceptable cost to avoid having to debate dynamic vs static
uids for every package review in the future?
+1 for finding interested contacts in other distros and just submit a
request to the LSB to have the static range expanded
You have to realise static UID scarcity is a big reason UIDs vary from
distro to distro - given UID shortage each distro priorises the
packages it cares most about and as a result the attribution choices
With a non-scarce range new UIDs and (and later historical UIDs) could
just nicely converge.
