Thanks [~smarru], perhaps we can meet to discuss this, I'm also concerned about over-engineering

> in AIRAVATA-2662 the "everyone" group is being added to the Sharing Registry.  A UserGroup
in the Sharing Registry must have a owner. This presents a problem, the "everyone" group cannot
be created until there is a user who can be the owner, but createUser should add each user
to the "everyone" group.
> For now the implementation of createUser creates the "everyone" group if it doesn't already
exist and makes this user the owner of the group.  That's less than ideal since the first
user of a domain ends up the owner of the "everyone" group.
> Here are some possible alternatives:
> * create a dummy admin user for the domain that is made the owner of the everyone group
> * allow groups to not have an owner (make the OWNER_ID column nullable on USER_GROUP)
