I think Peter is referring to deleting users from the "user" table.
Fossil keeps the commit history forever, and each manifest has the name
of the user that made the commit. In the database, this is recorded in
the user column of the "event" table as the name of the user that made
The only thing that refers to the UID, that may present an issue, is the
"rcvfrom" table. This can easily be changed to use the user name
rather than the UID.
There is no reason why users cannot be deleted from the "user"
table, since the user names would still show up in the history even if
users were deleted from this table.
