The proposal to merge lp:~mterry/livecd-rootfs/system-user into lp:livecd-rootfs has been updated.

Description changed to:

Bump MIN_UID to 1002, to avoid showing the 'system' user in a lightdm greeter.

There is a 'system' user with uid 1000, presumably for android compatibility(?).  There is also a 'radio' user with uid 1001.  But in Debian/Ubuntu, we show any users with uid 1000 or above as users available to login at the greeter.

In preparation for the lightdm greeter being enabled on touch images, I'd like to add this bit of code to bump MIN_UID to 1002, so we won't show the 'system' or 'radio' users.

Your team Ubuntu Core Development Team is requested to review the proposed merge of lp:~mterry/livecd-rootfs/system-user into lp:livecd-rootfs.
