I take it seriously, otherwise I would have just released a setup with
I've reverted them for the moment, since I want to do a setup release
now for other reasons.
Taking a step back:
I believe that the intent of the code in setup is that there should only
be two modes:
USER: install "for me", with the users primary group
SYSTEM: install "for everyone", with the administrators primary group
(only permitted if you are an administrator)
But in fact, this got broken this long ago, so we do something slightly
different (Please take a look at the discussion around ).
If the intention isn't adequate, can you describe what is needed?
