Subject: [PATCH 1/2] common/rc: add _require_user_exists() to check if a user exists
Date: Thu, 23 Sep 2021 11:41:22 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210923104123.29878-2-lhenriques@suse.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210923104123.29878-1-lhenriques@suse.de>

Function _require_user() does check if a user exists *and* if it is able
to execute commands.  Add a new function to simply check if a user exists.
