Package: adduser
Version: 3.48
Severity: minor
File: /usr/sbin/deluser
Tags: upstream

one can do
addgroup user group
but not
delgroup user group

one has to spend time to figure out one must do
deluser user group.

maybe if you the aren't going to be made symmetrical, at least the
error message could point us in the right direction.

P.S. the addgroup man page doesn't mention what to do to remove stuff.
One must guess it from the SEE ALSO references.
