Package: adduser
Version: 3.112+nmu2
Severity: minor

The last line of the synopsis of the adduser(8) manpage:
       adduser [options] user group
is translated like this:
       adduser [Optionen] Benutzergruppe
in the german manpage.
(It's the same in version 3.113+nmu3 from testing.)

That would be correct if "user group" refered to one entity, i.e. a
group of users. But of course it means that you first state the user,
then the group.

So the translation should be:
       adduser [Optionen] Benutzer Gruppe

All the best,
Christian Sievers
