Bug ID: 63028
           Summary: Inconsistent GID number (500 or 550)
           Product: Wikimedia Labs
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: Infrastructure
       Web browser: ---
   Mobile Platform: ---

Accounts imported from the old svn credentials received the GID 550 which is
the 'svn' group.

Users created via wikitech are assigned GID 500 which is 'wikidev'.

$ ldaplist -l passwd |grep gidNumber|sort|uniq -c|sort -n|tail -n2
  447     gidNumber: 550
 2615     gidNumber: 500

That makes sharing file between accounts a bit cumbersome :-]

We should update all the old accounts to use GID 500 (wikidev).
