The .NET Core SDK package seems to set a static gid of 100 for all installed files. To my understanding Arch Linux has since moved away from predictable group identifiers. Therefore, none of the installed files are correctly owned by the 'users' group. In fact, no group with gid 100 exists on my system.

Additional info:
* dotnet-sdk 2.1.1+301-1


1. Run 'pacman -S dotnet-sdk' on a system where 'users' group has gid <> 100
2. Examine files/directory ownership under /opt/dotnet

- Files are correctly owned by the 'users' group

- Files are owned by gid 100
This task depends upon

Actually, now that I think about it, the files should not definitely be owned by the user performing the install at all - regardless of the group gid. Other distros I've used dotnet-sdk with have the ownership set to root:root as expected.

On a Mac the ownership is set to root:wheel
