nova user should not be in the nogroup group

nova (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

This is similar to LP#851860

nova-common 2011.3~rc~20110909.r1155-0ubuntu1

The nova package creates a nova user who's primary (and only) group membership is 'nogroup'. This results in files/directories created by the nova user having 'nogroup' group ownership. This is considered a bad thing.

Please create a 'nova' group and add the nova user to this group instead.

= Tests =

$ id nova
uid=109(nova) gid=65534(nogroup) groups=65534(nogroup)

$ find /var/lib/nova -gid 65534 | wc -l
