[Adduser-devel] Bug#377774: adduser.conf(5) does not document ADD_EXTRA_GROUPS and EXTRA_GROUPS

Package: adduser
Version: 3.92
Severity: minor

The adduser.conf man page does not actually seem to document these two new
configuration variables. Indeed, while the first one is documented in the
adduser man page, the latter is not mentioned.

I also suggest adding an example of these in the default config file.

ii  perl-base                     5.8.8-6    The Pathologically Eclectic Rubbis

adduser recommends no packages.
