Package: adduser
Version: 3.63
Severity: wishlist


if (implicit?) deletion of a group is asked for, adduser should check
whether the group is empty (including a check for the group being
primary group for a different user) and refuse the operation if
deleting the group would leave the system in an inconsistent state.
