After installing the ssmtp package to get mail off the system I got the following:

no matching group file entry in /etc/gshadow
add group 'uucp' in /etc/gshadow ?No
grpck: no changes

Which is correct, the uucp is indeed missing :-).

Additional info:
[root@ve180 etc]# pacman -Qo gshadow
gshadow is owned by filesystem 2008.07-1
This task depends upon

$ grep -e uucp -e locate gshadow
$ grep -e uucp -e locate group

uucp and locate are missing on gshadow

Related task:  FS#10910  - /etc/group should contain the locate group by default
