Okay... looks like I was barking up the wrong tree. I found the info on
insopts in "man 5 ebuild", so it looks like insopts won't create the user
for me. I still haven't figured out how qmail is doing it, though....

Still looking....

Hi All.....

Trying to make an ebuild for mailman, and I need to create a user and group.
Maybe I'm blind, but I didn't see anything about this in the developer docs.

I notice that several of the ebuilds use "insopts" to (I think) accomplish
this, but neither google nor grep were able to shed much light on it.

Can anyone offer some guidance here?
