Disallow special usernames
Today I used the HDA dashboard to create a user called "ftp" which I intended to use for sftp, however I could not login to ssh with it since another user "ftp" was already defined in /etc/passwd with :/sbin/nologin . I saw no errors anywhere, so took some time to figure this one out.
I feel there should be a list of reserved usernames which the system uses for different stuff, those usernames should not be allowed to be entered when creating a new user in Amahi. This way users will not stumble upon weird/unexplainable problems post user creation.
