[Adduser-devel] Bug#584919: Some of the adduser.conf configuration options not present (in commented-out form) in installed /etc/adduser.conf

Package: adduser
Version: 3.102
Severity: wishlist


The installed /etc/adduser.conf file features most of the variables that
can control adduser, at least in commented out form, together with an
explanatory comment. This is really nice for the sysadmin, as it saves
back and forth between the documentation and the configuration file.
However, some adduser variables are not in that configuration file. It'd
be nice if they could be added too, in commented-out form and with a
short explanatory comment. At least, the ADD_EXTRA_GROUPS and
EXTRA_GROUPS seem very useful and were unknown to this sysadmin before
today, because they were not included in the /etc/adduser.conf file.
