Is there any change to fix this for Alpha1?

Could be closed, we're way past pre-alpha now.

Replying to haiqu:

We are well past pre-alpha, but the root user is still called 'user' and not 'root', so the ticket is still valid.

Please don't suggest changing things you don't fully understand.

I'd suggest keeping things as they are. Since the root user is currently pretty much the only actual user, and we can even easily rename it, I prefer the status quo.

Once we have a user different from root that does all the things, I'd reintroduce a root user that is actually named that way.

Milestone: R1R2

And multiuser support is an R2 thing, so lets move the ticket there :)

Let's reopen when we reach R2 developing cycle, i.e. in a very distant future ;)

Well it is already in the R2 milestone? I think it is nice to keep it there as a reminder of what we need to do.
