            Bug ID: 268960
           Summary: sysutils/nut: consider using a dedicated user instead
                    of "uucp"
           Product: Ports & Packages
           Version: Latest
          Hardware: Any

          Priority: ---
         Component: Individual Port(s)

Currently, the package builds nut with default user of uucp.  This was
introduced in ~2006 (bug 95015), at the point it made sense that some of
devices are connected via serial cables, which are owned by uucp.

Today, uucp is no longer bundled with the base system, and with the use of devd
makes it possible to use much finer grained access control.  Therefore, I'd
like to propose that we create a dedicated user for nut but keep the ability to
specify NUT_USER/NUT_GROUP for those who do not want to migrate.
