14 You misunderstood me.
16 I meant that if you don't care about the specific number, you just make
17 a request saying you'll take the highest free UID/GID pair at the time
18 (that said, please try to use matching UID/GID for convenience's sake).
19 That is, unless you want to take a specific lower number.
21 Since there's no point in waiting again, just look at uid-gid.txt, find
22 highest free UID/GID, verify that nobody else used or requested it.
23 Then commit it, and make sure to update uid-gid.txt.
