Hi,
the line in question for this bug is:
user --name=redhat --groups=red,users,wheel

After installation completes the user redhat with group redhat are created as
expected. The user is also member of users and wheel but not red.

Now my question is when the user account is created ? Pre or post installation
of packages begins ? (it should be documented probably).

In the above example the users and wheel group are crated by the installed
packages probably so they exist when the user account is created.
