I'd like to inform you that I have changed UID_MIN & GID_MIN from 500 to 1000
in upgraded shadow-utils.
I suppose UID/GID_MIN=1000 is more common(other distros, upstream). We are not
in situation that 500 IDs for system accounts ought to be enough for anybody.
Actually, it was not 500.It was 299 because range 0-200 is for reserved IDs.
There are 799 non reserved IDs for system accounts available after this
