An aside, not very important.
I don't want to distract anybody from the real work of Debian,
but if anybody is at all interested I have been working on an
aside set of programs for Debian.
I am fairly new to programming, and have been attempting my first real
set of C programs. Because of the great flame-war over shadow
password utilities, we have lost useradd, userdel, and usermod. I
have started trying to write some ones to replace these. If anybody
wants to help out, the .01 alpha of useradd is on
If anybody has spare time to take a looksee and perhaps add functions
(the expiration stuff and a *real* -m flag for instance) or otherwise
improve the code, I would welcome any help.
Please respond via direct email, not cc'ing debian-devel unless you
think it is *really* important.
