Bug ID: 62529
           Summary: Create l10nupdate users and group with id 10002
           Product: Wikimedia Labs
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: deployment-prep (beta)
       Web browser: ---
   Mobile Platform: ---

The production manifests to install an application server rely on user/group
l10nupdate with GID 10002 and an UID generated locally on each application
server.  The home dir is hardcoded everywhere to point to /home/l10nupdate

On labs, /home is a shared folder and puppet can not set the uid/gid for
/home/l10nupdate because NFS prevents to do so. Additionally each instance
would assign a different UID to l10nupdate user which would cause the files to
change of UID whenever puppet run on a different instance.

A way to solve it would be to create a l10nupdate user with UID 10002 and a
l10nupdate group with GID 10002.  The ids would then be usable on the NFS
server and they will be identical on each instances.
