Bug ID: 1143454
Summary: New system-user for tftp, so this tftp user is handled
only in a single place.
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE Tumbleweed
Version: Current
Hardware: Other
OS: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Basesystem
Assignee: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Reporter: dcassany@xxxxxxxx
QA Contact: qa-bugs@xxxxxxx

The tftp user is currently provided by multiple packages

* atftp
* python-kiwi
* dnsmasq
* tftp

And having the user defined in multiple places tends to cause glitches and
deviations among all these packages as it happened in bsc#1135449, where home
permissions were not consistent (/srv/tftpboot). Within the mentioned bug
discussion is was suggested move tftp user to a central package and then
require it from the above packages. This way issues like bsc#1135449 will not
occur in the future.
