Package: adduser
Version: 3.77
Severity: normal

with the re-work, we broke some things regarding verbosity:

 * verbose, quiet and debug seem to be orthogonal, and should probably
   be handled by a single variable $verbose which can have numeric values.
 * currently, $verbose can only have the values 0 and 1, while
   systemcall outputs debug information if $verbose==2, which can never
 * Adduser uses direct system() calls in some places with explicit
   verbose handling. Thse should probably be replaced by systemcall().

   [ Marc Haber ]
   * Changes suggested by Denis Barbier

     * deluser: make generation of copyright message more translation
     * hack gtx wrapper to not only export the first string into the
       POT file.
   * Add Brazilian Portuguese (pt_BR) manpage translation. Thanks to
     Felipe Augusto van de Wiel. (mh)

   [ Joerg Hoh ]
