This proposed feature is one possible way to deal with Bug 796242 -
"pcsc-lite: preinstall scriptlet adds user scard with bad path for
nologin shell".
Currently, the absolute location of the executable for system users'
shells is coded into rpm preinstall scriptlets scattered across
packages throughout the distro. I propose centralizing that knowledge
into useradd.
Thus, for instance
# useradd -s nologin newaccount # useradd -s dash newaccount
would both be acceptable and would result in a lookup of the correct
executable path before user account creation.
