[Slackbuilds-users] How to get.assign a UID for an application?

I am not sure who to ask so please excuse me if this should not go to 
the list, and direct me to the proper place.

I have a submission pending for taskd, a sync-server for task. I have 
been running it as root and with a locally assigned UID, but neglected 
to decide how to handle that before submission so it now assumes the 
daemon runs as root.

For those interested, the docs are here: http://taskwarrior.org/docs/

Should I instruct users to create a taskd user during setup, or is there 
a "central" control for assigning Slackware/SBo UIDs? And if so, how 
would I go about having one assigned for taskd?

Should I remove it from pending and resubmit after I have a taskd UID?
