adduser 3.118ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


adduser (3.118ubuntu1) disco; urgency=low

  * Merge from Debian unstable.  Remaining changes:
    -, adduser, adduser.8, adduser.conf.5: Allow uppercase
      letters in the names of system users. This is done by having a separate
      NAME_REGEX_SYSTEM configuration setting which applies when --system is
      specified. (Soren Hansen)
    - Add support for encrypting home directories:
      + adduser: Add --encrypt-home option, which calls ecryptfs-setup-private
        for the hard work.
      + doc/adduser.8: document the --encrypt-home option
      + debian/control: suggest ecryptfs-utils >= 67-1
      + deluser: remove all of /var/lib/ecryptfs/$user with --remove-home
    - extrausers support for adduser.

adduser: add and remove users and groups

 This package includes the 'adduser' and 'deluser' commands for creating
 and removing users.
  - 'adduser' creates new users and groups and adds existing users to
    existing groups;
  - 'deluser' removes users and groups and removes users from a given
 Adding users with 'adduser' is much easier than adding them manually.
 Adduser will choose appropriate UID and GID values, create a home
 directory, copy skeletal user configuration, and automate setting
 initial values for the user's password, real name and so on.
 Deluser can back up and remove users' home directories
 and mail spool or all the files they own on the system.
 A custom script can be executed after each of the commands.
