I upgraded postfix-2.8.3,1 to postfix-2.8.4,1 yesterday and today I 
realized, that postfix is nolonger in my manualy defined group 
(maildirs:*:3125:postfix). I use this setting for many years without 
After the change to "use the ports framework to create USERS and GROUPS" 
it means broken installation after upgrade.

1] I don't think it is good to touch user's customizations in users or 
groups especially removing something silently

2] If something like this change happend, it should be mentioned in UPDATING

Am I forced to do manual work (adding postfix to my group) after each
