Package: adduser
Version: 3.113+nmu3
Severity: wishlist

Now that Wheezy has been released...

Many, many moons ago, I contributed a sample adduser.local script
complete with example files (see bugs #94245 and #273010).

I have recently updated these files to version 4.9.  Could you
please update the /usr/share/doc/adduser/examples directory to
reflect this new version?  You can find a copy at:


I realise that script is rather over-engineered, but it has served
me faithfully (with modifications!) for well over a decade, and it
still does things that adduser itself does not.  Others may still
find it useful, too... if only as an example of what could be done.

Thanks in advance!

Yours truly,

John Zaitseff
