Hi,

seems that Tumbleweed and Factory has no more user "nobody" defined
in /etc/passwd. Is this wanted?

That is indeed wanted - the list of users has constantly been growing
and for many users/groups, it is/was not clear what requires them.

So Thorsten worked on a way to change this - and packages nowadays have
to specify if their content wants a specific user/group to be present.
