Ok, I think I've addressed all the issues raised. I've included Martin's cleaner lambda-based evaluator and the default uid/gid is now a random value between 1,000,000 and (2^31 - 1,000,000).


+ parser.add_option("--uidstart", dest="uidstart", default=namespace, type=int, + help="The starting uid value (default %default)") + parser.add_option("--gidstart", dest="gidstart", default=namespace, type=int, + help="The starting gid value (default %default)")

Please make the help message something like "(default random)" instead
of "(default %default)". This can be misleading because the number is
different on each invocation.

Ah, good point. The next time you run it you'll get a different number, and here I thought I was being so clever :-(

The manpage still says that the default is 1000.

Conditional Ack if these remaining issues are addressed.


Ok, I'll get these fixed up and push it later today.


Issues resolved, pushed to master.

David, the default value for uidnumber and gidnumber is now a random value between 1,000,000 and (2^31 - 1,000,000).

Thanks. It's been updated in the BZ (519418)
