OK, thanks for the very quick (as usual) reply, Marc.

I'm not fond of reassigning "my/our" bugs to others but in that case, thi=
bug would become a request to add a plugin for NIS to adduser...as
soon as the plugin or similar mechanism is implemented in adduser..:-)

Would you bother me to reassign this to adduser or do you have
already requests for NIS account management for it=A0?

About adduser maintainership, what is your current setup? Do you have
a team setup or is the package basically maintained by just you?

The shadow revival we recently made has given me some ideas about team
package maintenance I'd like to share (in fact, this is a bit too late
but I intended to talk about this at debconf....still maybe for an
informal BOF if I have enough courage...)
