Package: adduser
Version: 3.97
Severity: important

Please allow creation of user names containing an "@" character.
Currently, this does not work, even if NAME_REGEX has been changed

Background: I want to use PAM/saslauthd as configuration backend for a
virtual-domain-enabled Cyrus IMAPd.  For this to work correctly, my user
names must look like email addresses.



Severity important as per suggestion of the maintainer.
