Hey all,

Well, actually, all might just be you and I, Joerg :O

Why did the exit status of --help and --version get changed to 1?  It's
traditionalt to exit 0 after those switches.  help output should be
displayed and then exit 1 if an unknown parameter was passed, but that's
a different issue.

After we have this discussed and/or cleaned up, how do people feel about
an upload?  I wouldn't mind getting the silly bug reported by joey
closed.  I am still undecided about the other recent bug by Justin
(adduser --group --gid doesn't add a group).  I think this is primarily
a documentation bug, as it looks to me like adduser --group is intended
to mean something else (although, tbh, I'm not completely sure what).
