            Bug ID: 58997
           Summary: Transition service groups to new globally unique names
                    and UIDs
           Product: Wikimedia Labs
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: Infrastructure
    Classification: Unclassified
   Mobile Platform: ---

The current service group scheme, while workable, has design issues that cause
problems with services global to all projects (NFS and databases being the
primary examples).

Proposed new implementation:

- Globally unique UID/GIDs (that, I believe, is already the case)
- Names in the form $projectname.$groupname (rather than local-$groupname)
- All service groups under a single OU (and not per-project OUs)

- usernames and group names must disallow '.'

Ideally, the division on what system to use should be per-region so that
functionality in pmtpa is not impaired while the new system is geared up in

(The change from one to the other implies changes in many system
settings/scripts, not all of which could be tweaked to understand both
