-------------------------------------------

Thanks [~smarru], perhaps we can meet to discuss this, I'm also concerned about 
over-engineering this.

> in AIRAVATA-2662 the "everyone" group is being added to the Sharing Registry. 
>  A UserGroup in the Sharing Registry must have a owner. This presents a 
> problem, the "everyone" group cannot be created until there is a user who can 
> be the owner, but createUser should add each user to the "everyone" group.
> For now the implementation of createUser creates the "everyone" group if it 
> doesn't already exist and makes this user the owner of the group.  That's 
> less than ideal since the first user of a domain ends up the owner of the 
> "everyone" group.
> Here are some possible alternatives:
> * create a dummy admin user for the domain that is made the owner of the 
> everyone group
> * allow groups to not have an owner (make the OWNER_ID column nullable on 
> USER_GROUP)
