Thanks for reviving the thread. :) I too think useradd and groupadd in 
.install is the way to go, as I said in the first post. This has always 
worked for my packages well. Just inspircd, an adopted package, had it 
the other way and I wanted to ask the people on ML why.

I will surely have a look. I use this package on three production 
machines, but maybe something broke in the meantime? I don't know. I 
will also reuse your PKGBUILD. Thanks.

Should this go to the AUR guidelines?

Kind regards,
Damian Nowak
