Re: uid=gid argument
I'd like to call time on the uid=gid argument. I'm convinced this
issue is not going to come to resolution through discussion
I think it's fairly obvious that we should provide a script to switch
back and forth between the three configurations under discussion. I
can write a "modgrp" script which changes the current configuration,
but I'm a little leary of re-writing something like adduser on the
fly. Can we have a configuration file that tells adduser how to act?
Are there any other distinctions we wish to make about groups?
Currently, I understand:
bogus group (numeric id, but nothing in group -- can exist in
/etc/passwd, or can exist in filesystem [requires find]).
orphaned groups (no ids assigned to that group)
groups with no signon id (id has * in password field).
system groups with signon id(s) [usually root, and sometimes sysadmin].
user groups [this can include things like guest].
