Bug#857309: kodi: 'kodi' user does not exist

Package: kodi
Version: 2:17.0+dfsg1-3
Severity: important

Dear maintainer,

I installed the kodi package on a fresh installed debian testing and enabled the kodi systemd-service which should start kodi in standalone mode.
The service file (/lib/systemd/system/kodi.service) is configured to run as 'kodi' user, but this user doesn't exist after installation.
I think automatically adding the user when using him would make sense.
After adding the user everything works as expected.

Thanks for your work and have a nice day,
Moritz Schmidt
