Use a single account for gitlab-ce docker image

I am storing all of my gitlab related data on a single NFS share. Is there any problem with using a single user and group for all of

  • git
  • gitlab-www
  • gitlab-redis
  • gitlab-psql
  • gitlab-prometheus
  • mattermost
  • registry
  • gitlab-consul

They will all have the same effective permissions anyway. I have a gitlab folder on the NFS share with subfolders config, data, and logs there is no reason that I can think of why I can’t just use a single “git” user and group account. Is there a reason why I can’t do this?
