[Adduser-devel] Bug#385433: deluser: --backupt-to requires = for value now

Package: adduser
Version: 3.97
Severity: important


 I'm not completely sure from which version on of adduser or rather
perl-base this is true, but the long option --backup-to requires now an
= between itself and its value, like --backup-to=/srv/backup/homes/
instead of formerly --backup-to /srv/backup/homes/.

 Please update the documentation appropriately because it still speaks
of --backup-to <DIR> in the usage (the script itself) and the manpage.

 Thanks in advance,

Versions of packages adduser depends on:
ii  debconf [debconf-2.0]       1.5.3        Debian configuration management sy
ii  passwd                      1: change and administer password and
ii  perl-base                   5.8.8-6.1    The Pathologically Eclectic Rubbis
  * The "No, I don't think I actually want any of what upstream is
    smoking" release
