Package: adduser
Version: 3.110
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch


I was after a way to use a different range of gid's when invoking  
addgroup, similar to --firstuid and --lastuid with adduser. When I  
discovered it wasn't currently supported I modified the script to  
include it. If you think this feature is an appropriate addition to  
the functionality of addgroup, It would be good if this patch was  
incorporated into the next release. This may be a better solution for  
bug #440801 than relying on --firstuid and --lastuid.

I also noticed that --firstuid and --lastuid did not work for adduser  
--system (bug #344824) so I have also incorporated that feature.
