Package: adduser
Version: 3.59
Severity: wishlist

Long, long ago, when the earth was still young (or so it seems :-), I 
submitted a wishlist request to include one of my scripts as part of 
the adduser package.  And the then-maintainer Roland graciously did so.

It has come to pass, however, that the script that was included (and is 
still being included) became out-of-date.  In particular: the script 
itself has undergone three revisions since being included; my contact 
details have changed; and the URL for new versions has changed.

Could you, therefore, include the latest version of my adduser.local 
script and associated files?  You can find a copy at:


If you choose not to include _my_ examples directory (part of the 
adduser.local.tar.gz archive), could you insert a note in the changelog 
to that effect?  Something like "Included an example adduser.local 
script from John Zaitseff; see examples/README for instructions on 
obtaining the complete archive" would be more than sufficient.

It would have been nice to include these changes for the up-coming 
release of Debian Sarge, but I suppose I have left things a little too 
late... :-(

Yours truly,

John Zaitseff
