Feature #309397, revision 2
Title: add primary user to floppy and cdrom

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Christopher Yeleighton (yecril71pl)
Partner organization:

The primary user created by the installer should belong to groups
floppy and cdrom .

Use Case:
* The user has created a document and she wants to transfer it to a
floppy disk.
* The user has two CD-ROM drives and she wants to access the other one.

Business case (Partner benefit): it is hardly imaginable one would forbid oneself writing
floppy disks.

+ Discussion:
+ #1: Jan Engelhardt (jengelh) (2010-05-06 22:45:57)
+ Adding to groups is an anachronism. ConsoleKit should have added
+ appropriate ACLs on login on /dev/sr0 and such, like it does on
+ /dev/snd/*.
