Subject: [gentoo-dev] acct-user/gvm request for 495

Hi, 

gvm (previously named OpenVAS) doesn't have a fixed ID in fedora or
arch. I assigned free 495 according to
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Project:Quality_Assurance/UID_GID_Assignment


WHY WE NEED USER? 

COMMUNITY EDITION of gvm {Greenbone Vulnerability Management} with
version 10 uses only rsync to updating feeds and rsyncing under root is
not secure.Upstream strongly recommends to run daemons and feed updates
under non-root user. Because of that i need user 'gvm' for the package.
All services & init scripts and vulnerability feed executables will run
under user 'gvm'.
