Rename gerrit2 unix user to gerrit and assign a fixed uid
Open, LowPublic


When switching over Gerrit (ex: T326368 ) we have to rsync the LFS data, search indices and cache which requires a follow up chown -R gerrit2 on each affected base paths. Using a central fixed uid for the user would save us from having to do the chown.

While changing the uid, I'd like to also rename the user from the confusing gerrit2 to gerrit.
