Bug#444836: cupsys: Readme says use sys, Debian uses lpadmin

Package: cupsys
Version: 1.2.12-1
Severity: normal

Dear CUPS maintainers,

First of all many thanks for your work.

I installed Lenny on a computer and chose to not have a root password.
Then when the web interface of CUPS asked me to log in, I looked in
/usr/share/doc/cupsys, and found this in README.txt:

    You will be asked for the administration password (root or
    any other user in the sys/system/root group on your system)
    when performing any administrative function.

This is misleading, as Debian uses lpadmin for this purpose. I think
that it would be nice to document this, maybe by patching the README for
instance. It would save a bit of time to people facing this problem.

Have a nice day,
