glance user should not be in the 'nogroup' group

Bug Description

glance 2011.3~rc~20110908.r1005-0ubuntu1

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

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

= Tests =

$ id glance
uid=108(glance) gid=65534(nogroup) groups=65534(nogroup)

$ ls -al /var/lib/glance/images/1 /var/log/glance/api.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 glance nogroup 4107552 2011-08-03 13:02 /var/lib/glance/images/1
-rw-r--r-- 1 glance nogroup 6325722 2011-09-16 14:02 /var/log/glance/api.log

Confirmed, and I think high priority, as changing this means having to go through and find all the glance:nogroup files and fixing them to be glance:glance
