Maybe add something like :
By default, only the first user, that will be created in the next step,
will be allowed to use <command>sudo</command> to perform these
administrative tasks.

Yes, you are right, it works exactly this way.

I have committed a change to document this clearer:

This thread suggests I don't know as much about "sudo" as I thought.
To form a reasonable question I need to read the whole document with changes included - diffs etc just confuse me.

Has this change propagated to the
https://www.debian.org/releases/stable/i386/ hierarchy?

Thank you.
