[Adduser-devel] Bug#90576: Is this still important to you? (was: adduser/useradd and autofs)

I am writing to ask if this is a feature you're still interested in.
Since it's only been 5 years, I can understand if you might not be :)

I am not sure I understand exactly what the problem is.  For a given
user, let's say, Howard, uid howie, adduser creates /home/howie.  The
automounter configuration will try to mount nfsserver:/path/to/howie on
/home/howie - that's fine, this gets mounted over top of the existing
directory, and no harm done (except for the incremental but negligible
cost of having multiple copies of the files in /etc/skel, but you can rm
them if that bothers you).

Am I missing something?  Mark, if there is (as I expect) no response to
this bug in some defined time period (3 weeks?  I don't know), and you
don't think I'm missing anything, I think this is closeable.

Take care,
